Montana Mammography Directory

Montana Mammography Directory: PDF, Word

The Montana Mammography Directory provides information on mammography service providers by city.  Each entry includes contact information, hours of operation, standard and additional services available, and disability access information.

Every few years we ask all the mammography facilities in the state to update their center’s information or this directory. Please use the Montana Mammography Directory as a resource guide when scheduling your mammogram. We strongly recommend that you also contact the clinic to make sure that they can provide you with the appropriate services. Scheduling contact information for mammography clinics can be found on the specific clinic’s page in the on-line directory

If you are between 40-49 years of age, talk with your doctor about getting a mammogram. If you are 50 years of age or older, be sure to get a mammogram every two years. For more information, visit www.cdc.gov/RightToKnow or call 1-800-CDC-INFO (232-4636); 1-888-232-6348 (TTY). In Montana, women can arrange to receive a mammogram from a seated position. All mammography centers in the state have at least one machine that can be lowered for someone who is sitting down (i.e., to 31 inches or lower). Some mammography facilities may have access issues that may require advanced planning to ensure a successful mammogram experience. This directory offers suggestions that help you to be aware of those issues and help you develop a plan to address them when scheduling your mammogram. Planning ahead will help ensure an efficient and successful experience for you and the health care providers. Some examples of questions you may ask about the accessibility of a facility include:
  • Where is the Van Accessible Parking located? Is it clearly marked with an upright sign?
  • Are there automatic door openers or lever handles on all doors?
  • Is there enough space in the mammography room for me to maneuver my wheelchair?
  • Are the changing rooms accessible or could I use the exam room to change my clothes?
  • Is there an accessible restroom within the mammography department? If not, where is the closest accessible bathroom to the mammography department?
  • Does the facility have an ASL interpreter?
  • Will I need to schedule additional time for my mammogram?
  • How soon will I know if additional images are needed? Can I return to the same mammography center for additional testing or will I need to go somewhere else?
