The Breast Health Centers are focusing on overcoming barriers that often prevent women from getting mammograms, says Mai Saif, M.D., of  the Breast Health Centers. "In particular we want to address the fear that mammograms may be uncomfortable,” she says.

The Breast Health Centers offer a softer mammogram by using a cushioned breast pad. There is no additional charge for this pad.

The specially designed MammoPad® breast cushion is placed on the mammography machine to provide a soft, warm cushion for the breast. The single-use breast cushion has been found to significantly ease the discomfort of mammography for most women.

The Breast Health Centers are reminding women to ask their family doctor, gynecologist or other physician to refer them for a mammogram.
