In brief: Prior mammograms

It is helpful if you can bring any reports or the films from your prior mammograms, breast ultrasounds, or breast MRI scans.
If you do not have access to these films/reports, then try to find out the name of the facility where those studies were performed. This helps the radiologist compare your current mammogram with your prior imaging studies, a critical step in seeing any changes over time.
