What is a Mammogram?
Mammography, also known as a mammogram, is the examination of the breast using x-rays. Mammography is considered the most effective tool for early breast tumor detection. Most medical experts agree that successful treatment of breast cancer often is linked to early diagnosis. Mammography plays a central part in early detection of breast cancers because it can show changes in the breast up to two years before a patient or physician can feel them.
We are proud to be able to offer the most advanced technology (3D mammography) with a team of the most dedicated and highly trained technologists and radiologists specializing in breast imaging. We use Full Field Digital Mammography with Tomosynthesis (3D). This includes the widest angle for image acquisition at 50 degrees and a reconstruction of those images into 3D volume for better depth resolution and clarity.
All of our mammography exams are interpreted with the aid of Computer-aided detection (CAD). CAD uses a digitized mammographic image to search for abnormal areas of density, mass, or calcification that may indicate the presence of cancer. The CAD system highlights these areas on the images, alerting the need for further analysis.
