Woodstock Hospital offers a full mammography service that includes screening and diagnostic mammograms, stereotactic biopsies and pre-operative localization of breast lesions. Mammography, an X-ray image of the breast, is still the most important tool doctors have to diagnose breast cancer. Woodstock Hospital’s wait time from mammogram to diagnosis to surgery for breast cancer patients is approximately five to seven weeks. This is one of the best response times in the province.
Your physician's office will make the appointment for you through Central Booking at Woodstock Hospital and will give you a mammography/breast requisition that documents the exam requested, the clinical information and any preparations required for the exam. Also, bring a list of your current medications to your appointment. You must bring this requisition and your Health card to your appointment. The exam will not be performed if there is no requisition for the exam. The radiologist will interpret the exam and the results will be sent to your physician within 3 to 5 working days.
Monday - Friday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm
