According to LCD L36342, a diagnostic mammography is a radiologic procedure furnished to a man or woman with signs and symptoms of breast disease, personal history of breast cancer, or a personal history of biopsy-proven benign breast disease, and includes a physician’s interpretation of the results of the procedure. 

Diagnostic mammogram(s) are allowed for the following indications:

Diagnostic breast evaluation may be indicated in cases of a personal history of malignancy and in cases of benign biopsy-proven breast disease. These diagnoses should not, however, routinely warrant a diagnostic mammography.
