    • Request a mammogram appointment

      Mammograms are only available at our Durham and Fayeteville locations.

      Your time is important – to you, your family and us. That’s why screening mammograms performed at Durham Diagnostic Imaging 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.

      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.

      I recommend requesting your mammo be performed by Valrie Moss. I was in today for my annual, and was lucky enough to be paired with Valrie. She was knowledgable, kind, funny and IMMEDIATELY put me at ease. Thank you, Valrie!

      Nurse Val was incredibly kind and helpful during my procedure - I was quite anxious, and she completely eased my mind. Dr. Merritt was very professional and made my procedure virtually painless. Every time that I have called this office with a question, the person on the other end of the line has been very patient and helpful. Overall I am very impressed with this office and would definitely recommend!

      The South Point Office are not that friendly. And what I do not like is how they talk to you when you express your concerns about your breast to them. The examiners are not friendly at all towards me. No smile or warmth from them. They treat you as a number to them instead of a paying patient who came to them for service. The Ben Franklin office I like better. They are a lot warmer there towards me as a patient.

      I do not normally leave reviews about a business. However, my visit at your office this morning for a routine and ultrasound mammogram requested by my doctor/specialist, has left me feeling some kind of way. First, I would like to thank your front office staff for being so welcoming and organized. My check-in was very quick. However, the pre-mammogram questioning and preventive/annnual mammogram screening with my first technician was very interesting. My ultrasound mammographer was kind. However, by the time the ultrasound mammogram was done, I felt that she was doing this procedure in order to follow some type of protocol and not because my doctor/specialist requested it. My ultrasound mammographer did give me some immediate feedback after my images were reviewed by the radiologist.

      Wow! This is one of the most efficient medical offices I've been to. Everyone was super nice and had all of the paperwork and everything organized. I went there for a mammogram. It took about 20 minutes from the time I checked in until I was walking back out to my car.

      I love these ladies. I've gotten 4 mammograms there, and 3 ultrasounds, and every Tech/Nurse I've had has been so caring, and gentle, and kind... It makes a world of difference. And the front desk people have been pleasant each time, also, and I've never had to wait very long at all to be seen. I love this staff, and I've been to plenty of other places where, unfortunately, I could not say that.
