What is Mammography?
Mammography is a specialized type of X-ray imaging that is used to detect early signs of breast cancer. It involves compressing the breast between two plates and taking X-ray images from different angles to produce detailed images of the breast tissue.
Mammography is the most effective method of detecting breast cancer in its early stages when it is most treatable. Regular mammograms are recommended for women over the age of 40, or earlier if they have a family history of breast cancer or other risk factors.
Mammography is safe and non-invasive and the benefits of early detection of breast cancer through regular mammograms far outweigh the minimal risks associated with the procedure.
Why would you need Mammography services?
Here are some reasons why you may need Mammography:
- Routine screening: If you are a woman over the age of 40. It is recommended that you have a mammogram every year or every other year, depending on your risk factor for breast cancer. Routine mammography can help to detect breast cancer early when it is most treatable.
- Diagnostic imaging: If you or your doctor have found a lump or other abnormality in your breast, mammography may be used to further evaluate the area and determine whether further testing or treatment is necessary.
- Follow-up after treatment: Mammography may be used to monitor the effectiveness of treatment for breast cancer and to detect any recurrence of the disease.
- Family history of breast cancer: If you have a family history of breast cancer or other risk factors for the disease, your doctor may recommend that you start having mammograms at an earlier age or have them more frequently.
