A screening mammogram is an x-ray exam of the breasts in a woman who has no symptoms. It is used to detect breast changes in women who have no signs or symptoms or new breast abnormalities. The goal is to detect cancer before clinical signs are noticeable. A screening mammogram is suggested annually for women age 40 and older
During a mammogram, your breasts are compressed between two firm surfaces to spread out the breast tissue. Using our state-of-the-art Hologic M4 Platinum system, we are able to capture and manipulate images of the breast such that abnormalities are seen more easily.
