Screening Mammogram

As the demand for mammography continues to increase at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, most of our patients have learned to schedule their next annual exam as early as 6 to 12 months ahead.

To schedule your mammography appointment, call:

  • Northwestern Memorial Hospital: 312-926-5522
  • Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital: 847-535-8000

If you are unable to keep your appointment, please call at least 3 days in advance so that we will be able to reschedule without significant delay.

Comprehensive Breast Imaging Services

In addition to screening mammography, the Lynn Sage Comprehensive Breast Center at Northwestern Memorial Hospital offers diagnostic breast imaging evaluation, including diagnostic mammography, breast ultrasound, breast MRI and all imaging-guided breast biopsies.

All exams are tailored to an individual’s problems, and interpretations and biopsy procedures are performed by radiologists who specialize in breast imaging. Northwestern’s Breast Imaging is an American College of Radiology Center of Excellence, and in the past several years, we have increased our breast imaging specialists to meet the demand for both screening mammography and diagnostic breast imaging.

Why Have a Screening Mammogram

Early detection could save many lives lost to breast cancer each year. Even if you do not have signs or symptoms of breast abnormalities, we suggest that you schedule screening mammography. It is recommended that women over 40 years of age should have a screening mammogram every year. Women who are at higher than average risk of breast cancer should talk with their healthcare providers about whether to screen before the age of 40.
