What Is Mammography?
Mammography is a low dose x-ray examination of the breast. It is a painless examination that can detect tumors in the earliest stages, when cure rates are the highest.
Who Should Have A Mammogram?
Because 1 out of every 8 women in the United States will develop breast cancer, the American Cancer Society recommends the following guidelines for women:
- Age 35-40 - A baseline mammogram should be done for examination purposes to establish a reference for comparison to future examinations
- Age 40-49 - Every 1 to 2 years, based on physical examination and other considerations determined by your physician
- Age 50+ - Every year for women with problem-free breasts; physician-recommended schedule for women who have certain symptoms or other considerations (family history of breast cancer, etc.)
Ultrasound uses sound waves to see inside the body. An "echo" is created by sound waves passing through the skin and bouncing off certain organs and tissues. These echoes reflect through a transducer to a monitor. The specialized technologists in our Ultrasound area offer routine abdominal and obstetric/gynecological studies in addition to carotid and arterial/venous Doppler studies.
