Accurate images are key to maintaining breast health. We offer both multiple types of breast x-rays, called mammograms, to make sure we can detect any problems that may stand between you and good health.
Tomosynthesis, or 3D Mammography, allows doctors to see masses and distortions associated with cancers significantly more clearly than conventional two-dimensional mammography. With 3D mammography [PDF] fine details are more visible and no longer hidden by the tissue above or below.
A screening mammogram is an x-ray of the breast used to detect breast changes in women who have no signs of breast cancer. It usually involves two x-rays of each breast. Using a mammogram, it is possible to detect a tumor that cannot be felt.
A diagnostic mammogram is an x-ray of the breast used to diagnose unusual breast changes, such as: a lump, pain, nipple thickening or discharge, or a change in breast size or shape. These mammograms are used to evaluate unusual spots detected on a screening mammogram.
Women without a special condition or history generally begin having annual mammograms at the age of 40. Talk with your physician about a mammography schedule that is appropriate for you based on your overall health and medical history, risk factors, and personal opinion or preference.
