    Loud and not the most comfortable, but better than mammogram!! Really not that bad though. Anxiety is worse

    It isn't as bad as I anticipated. The machine is loud. If you have any anxiety issues, ask your nurse to give you anxiety medicine before the procedure. This will help you relax. I kept my eyes closed during the procedure too. I also listened to music through headphones which helped distract me.
