Mammography

A mammogram is an x-ray of the breast tissue, which doctors use to determine changes in breast tissue or detect early stages of breast cancer.

Mammograms can be performed on either women or men, and can take up to two hours to complete.

State-of-the-art Digital Mammography

Board-certified radiologists at Magee-Womens Imaging use the latest, state-of-the-art digital technology for mammograms.

Digital mammography:

  • Produces high-quality images of the breast
  • Can show cancer that may be too small for you or your doctor to feel
  • Allows for a more accurate diagnosis of breast cancer
  • Provides easier access for your referring physician to obtain your imaging results

Screening and Diagnostic Mammograms

There are two types of mammograms: screening and diagnostic.

A screening mammogram is performed if you have no symptoms of breast disease.

A diagnostic mammogram is performed if you have:

  • Signs or symptoms of breast problems, including:
    • Lumps
    • Pain
    • A change in skin color or texture
    • A change in size or shape of the breast
    • Nipple discharge or inversion
  • A personal history of breast cancer
  • A personal history of benign breast disease diagnosed by a biopsy, or a previous suspicious breast mass or lump
  • Large, augmented, or implanted breasts that are difficult to examine

Once the exam is complete, your board-certified radiologist will interpret the images with you.

Generally, mammograms are extensive enough for doctors to determine a diagnosis, however some people may require further testing, such as breast biopsies or ultrasound scans.

Mammography Images



Digital mammography is similar to a traditional mammogram except it collects x-ray images on a digital detector and stores them on a computer, rather than using film.
