CGM during Mammogram

Has anyone kept their cgm transmitter on during a mammogram and just covered it with a protective covering?

I had my mammogram a few weeks ago and left my Dexcom G6 on although it’s not recommended. I have not had any problems. Dexcom will replace a sensor if you remove it for radiology tests though - you just have to call afterwards and request one.


I think I left my Medtronic on too, the last time I had a mammogram, though I removed my pump. I may remove it this time just to be on the safe side.

Had my mammogram last week, did not cover my Dexcom, and it worked fine afterward.

Alright, well, maybe it will be ok.

When I had my most recent mammogram, i informed the technician about my CGM and she used a lead “apron” around my waist to cover it (I wear my CGM on my abdomen). No issues except that apron weighed a ton!

Same with me- I never remove my CGM sensor during mammograms (although the Techs always recommend that you do). Instead I have them cover the CGM with the lead apron & it’s been fine.
