    • Request a mammogram appointment

      Mammograms are only available at our Anderson, Columbia ImageCare and Greenville locations.

      Your time is important – to you, your family and us. That’s why screening mammograms performed at Anderson Radiology, Palmetto Imaging - ImageCare, and Innervision generally take less than 30 minutes – less time than a typical doctor’s office visit.

      Screening mammograms are the best way to help find breast cancer in its earliest stages, when cure rates are highest. A screening mammogram is for women who do not have significant symptoms. If we find a problem during your screening mammogram, or if you are experiencing unusual symptoms, we may recommend you receive a diagnostic mammogram or other breast imaging procedure to help identify the cause.

      A physician referral is not required for a screening mammogram

      You should schedule a mammogram annually after age 40 while in good health. While a physician referral is not required for this exam, we will need the name of the patient's physician to whom the mammography report can be sent. Further, if an abnormality is found, the patient's physician will be able to set an avenue for proper follow-up.

      Request a screening mammogram appointment

      Our online request an appointment feature is for patients who would like to schedule a future appointment and is not intended for same day appointments.

      If you would like to schedule a mammogram, please click the button below and complete the form. A representative will contact you to collect additional information and arrange your appointment.

      Please note: In Columbia, mammograms are only offered in our Palmetto Imaging - ImageCare location.

      I had a very positive experience at this location. Whitney called to reschedule my appointment and was very professional and understanding about my work requirements. After arriving with my paperwork completed, Megan checked me in. She was very friendly. Angie was my tech and did a great job. She was kind and explained everything that would be happening. She showed concern for my comfort and played my requested genre of music while I was having the scan done. I really recommend this place for an scans or images you need done.

      I was very nervous when I arrived due to the fact I don't like needles but the gentleman that gave me the shot was excellent. The only negative thing was being strapped down for the test and the length of time I was in machine. Overall it was a good experience

      I have used PI for both MRIs and CAT scans and have found PI totally professional, very timely to get appointments, quick to analyze and report to the doctors, while being much cheaper than the hospitals. If a need arises, ask your doctor to write an order to Palmetto Imaging and save both time and a lot of money while getting professional service.
