You do not need to fast for this test.

The radiomanipulator will take the time to talk with the patient and reassure her about the examination. To facilitate mammography, it's important to relax and cooperate with the health-care professional, so as to reduce the pain felt during compression. Following the manipulator's advice can make the examination more comfortable.

Remember, compression lasts only a few seconds.

If you have sensitive breasts:

Ask to be examined within 10 days of the start of your period.
