Digital Mammography

A mammogram is a safe, low-dose, X-ray of the breast. Routine, annual mammograms are the best screening tool available for breast cancer because they can detect changes in the breast long before any symptoms appear or any lumps can be felt. When tumors are found early, more treatment options are available. In addition, small cancers are the most curable.

Two kinds of mammograms are available. A basic screening is performed when no symptoms are present to detect the presence of any abnormalities. A diagnostic mammogram, which provides additional images, is done to detect and diagnose breast disease in women who are experiencing symptoms.

This vital imaging exam is available at numerous locations throughout the BayCare Health System imaging centers.
