Medical Imaging of Fredericksburg – Mammograms


Amidst the current COVID-19 pandemic, healthcare services are more important than ever. Though the pandemic has instilled some fear in patients and is causing them to avoid medical services, we want our patients to know it is crucial that women do not skip or delay their screening mammogram appointments.

Now, with COVID-19 vaccination rolling out across the nation, women are reporting a side effect of the vaccine that can mimic a sign of breast cancer – swollen lymph nodes, specifically in the under-arm area. Though some patients may be concerned with the symptom, this vaccine response is normal and can persist up to four weeks after receiving the shot.

Dr. Roni Talukdar, Section Chief of Women’s Imaging at RAF, reassures patients that the vaccine is safe and swollen lymph nodes are not of concern, but cautions that if swelling remains after a few weeks, or if other symptoms such as a lump, pain, or discharge occur, it is important to follow up with your doctor and schedule a screening exam.

RAF’s Women’s Imagers are fellowship trained and have the expertise needed to detect abnormalities a mammogram may present. To be sure that swollen glands caused by a vaccine immune response are not obstructing the imaging study, we recommend scheduling your mammogram before you receive the first dose of the vaccine, or four to six weeks after the second dose is administered. Remember, screening mammograms save lives! You can schedule your appointment today by calling (540) 741-X-RAY.

Mammograms are available at the following locations.

Annual Mammograms are the #1 tool in the fight against breast cancer.
1 in 8 women develop breast cancer in their lifetime, while 4 in 10 women skip their annual mammogram each year. Change the stats. Schedule your screening mammogram today.

"It literally saves lives...

“I’ve seen so many cases come through and they haven’t had a mammogram in forever and they come in and they say… I should have come in earlier. It literally saves lives.”

"You can have peace of mind for the rest of the year...

“As women, they start thinking about other people but they don’t really think about themselves… so they put it off until that lump grows or until that lump starts to hurt. Just come in and get that annual screening just to make sure you can have peace of mind for the rest of the year.”
