Mammography is a specific type of imaging that uses a low-dose x-ray system to examine breasts. A mammography exam, called a mammogram, can be used to check for breast cancer in women who have no signs or symptoms of the disease. This type of mammogram is called a screening mammogram. Screening mammograms usually involve two x-ray pictures, or images, of each breast.

Depending on each womanʼs particular need, the X-rays may be taken in a standing position or seated, and from different angles. Usually pictures are taken from at least two angles—top to bottom and side to side. Additional views may be ordered by the radiologist at the completion of the standard views.

These are taken to clarify any indistinct areas or to see areas that were not visible in the original pictures. The x-ray images make it possible to detect tumors that cannot be felt. Screening mammograms can also find microcalcifications (tiny deposits of calcium) that sometimes indicate the presence of breast cancer.

Tips

As you will have to undress to the waist for the examination, it would be more convenient to wear a blouse with a skirt or slacks. On the day of the exam, do not apply any deodorant, perfume, powders, or ointments on your underarms or breasts to avoid clouding the x-rays.
