Finding abnormalities or changes early, gives you the best chance of preventing or treating them if necessary. EFW Screening Programs are imaging reports used to aid in this process. It is important to know that no screening test is 100% accurate. They are limited in their scope and not a guarantee that an abnormality or change will be identified.

Please arrive 10 minutes in advance of your appointment time.

How Do I Prepare for My Exam?

  • Do not eat for 6 hours prior to exam.
  • Clear fluids allowed. No milk or cream.
