This varies from practice to practice. A screening mammogram usually take 1-3 days to get results. If there are old studies that need to be retrieved or ordered from elsewhere, it may take longer, sometimes even 2-3 weeks. There may be guidelines to limit the maximum to under 4 weeks. Diagnostic mammograms are usually interpreted in the same day, unless old films are needed.

The legal requirement of the Mammography Quality Standards Act(MQSA) is that you receive a results letter within 30 days. Most often patients will hear from their doctor much sooner. If you are very worried, call your doctors office for results. Typically the report should be available within a couple of days.
