Diagnostic mammography - for patients with abnormal breast symptoms or who had a screening mammogram reveal a breast abnormality or suspicion. Also for patients who have breast implants.
Now Offering Self Requested Mammograms
In order to enhance direct patient access to VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital’s screening mammography services; beginning April 1, 2016, patients can schedule their screening mammogram without a physician’s order. Patients should call 434-774-2450 and speak with one of VCU Health CMH’s Patient Access Representatives to schedule an exam.
Callers should be prepared to provide information including their regular health care provider, when and where their last mammogram was performed and insurance information. It is also important for patients to inform VCU Health CMH of their regular health care provider so the hospital will know where to send the screening results.
If a potential patient does not have a regular healthcare provider to send their results to, they can choose from our list of providers. Patients currently experiencing problems or with a history of breast cancer will still require a physician’s order to schedule their diagnostic mammogram. Our Mammography department is accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR) and ready to provide the residents of southside Virginia and northern North Carolina with their breast imaging needs.
