About Mammography

Breast cancer will affect an average of one in eight women sometime in their lifetime. The key role of Mammography is to identify breast cancer in its earliest stages. It is the second most common cause of cancer-related deaths in women. Studies show mammograms are still the most effective way of detecting — and therefore treating and beating — breast cancer. The American Cancer Society recommends that all women age 40 and older should have a screening mammogram every year and should continue to do so for as long as they are in good health. In addition, women with certain risk factors should discuss an appropriate screening program with their physician. The key to mammography screening is that it be done routinely — once is not enough.

What is digital mammography?

Digital mammography is the newest and most technologically advanced way of taking images of the breast. From a patients’ point of view, a digital mammogram feels the same as having a film mammogram. However, instead of using film to record the image, digital mammography takes an electronic image of the breast and sends it to a computer monitor. This gives the radiologists (physicians) the ability to manipulate the images in order to get the most information possible.
