Inform the patient that the best time to schedule the examination is 1 wk after menses, when breast tenderness is decreased. Inform the patient not to apply deodorant, body creams, or powders on the day of the procedure, as these products may contain aluminum, which can be misinterpreted as calcifications in the breast tissue.
