Digital mammograms are significantly better for women under 50 and those with denser breast tissue. They also used less radiation that the film screen mammography, and the exam time is shorter because there is no film to process.

You need to make an appointment for the mammogram. Call 214-820-3040 to schedule an appointment. You will need to bring your insurance card and photo ID to the appointment.
An annual mammogram is covered by most insurance plans, with some fees billed at a later date. Mammograms under age 35 require a physician order.
