A Crucial Step Towards Early Detection of Breast Cancer
Description of Mammogram
A mammogram uses a specialised X-ray machine to obtain images of breasts. There are two main reasons for conducting a mammogram: to detect a cause for breast symptoms (diagnostic mammogram) or to detect early radiological signs of possible breast cancer in asymptomatic patients (screening mammogram). Often, a breast ultrasound is also performed in addition to a mammogram to assist in diagnosis. Our state-of-the-art digital equipment performs tomosynthesis, which produces thin X-ray slices through the breast, providing higher diagnostic details.
