  1 July 2009

Mammography is a special type of safe, low-dose x-ray imaging of the breast and is used to visualize normal and abnormal structures within the breasts.

Using a mammogram, it is possible to detect a tumor that cannot be felt. The mammography procedure usually takes approximately 30 minutes.

The breasts will be positioned between two plates in a mammography unit. The breasts are then slowly compressed, and low radiation x-ray images will be taken from horizontal and vertical angles of each breast. Mammography may be used either for screening or to make a diagnosis.
