What Is a Mammogram?

  • A mammogram is a specific type of breast exam used to aid in the early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases in women.

  • This quick medical exam uses a noninvasive X-ray targeted to each breast, producing pictures that your doctor can use to identify and treat any abnormal areas, possibly indicating the presence of cancer.

 

                                 Why Are Mammograms Important?

  • Annual mammograms can detect cancer early — when it is most treatable.

  • In fact, mammograms show changes in the breast up to two years before a patient or physician can feel them.

  • Mammograms can also prevent the need for extensive treatment for advanced cancers and improve chances of breast conservation.

  • Current guidelines from the American College of Radiology and the Society for Breast Imaging recommend that women receive annual mammograms starting at age 40 — even if they have no symptoms or family history of breast cancer.

•North Coast Bone Density & Breast care centre have the latest digital technology which means better clarity and accuracy and far less discomfort.

•A special technique is also used for augmented breasts.
