Mammography
It is an x-ray of the breast that is used to find cancer and mammary tumors.

How the test is performed
You are asked to undress from the waist up and a hospital gown is offered for you to wear. Depending on the type of equipment used, you will remain seated or standing.

One breast is placed at a time on a flat surface containing the X-ray plate. Then, a device called a compressor presses firmly against the breast to help flatten the breast tissue.

X-rays or x-ray plates are taken from various angles. You may be asked to hold your breath as each picture is taken.

You may be asked to return at a later date to take more mammographic images. This does not always mean that you have breast cancer. Your health care provider may simply need to revisit an area that could not be clearly seen on the first test.

TYPES OF MAMMOGRAPHIES

Traditional mammography uses film, similar to the routine of x-rays.

Digital mammography is a newer technique:

It is now used in many breast examination centers.
It allows the X-ray image to be visualized and manipulated on a computer screen.
It may be more accurate in young women with dense breasts. It has not yet been shown to help reduce a woman's risk of dying from breast cancer compared to film mammography.
Three-dimensional mammography (3D) is a digital type of mammography. Researchers still do not know if 3D mammography is more or less accurate than standard mammography.
