Your mammogram may be screening or diagnostic.
A screening mammogram is performed on women without symptoms as a “checkup” once per year beginning at age 40. A minimum of four X-ray pictures, two of each breast, are taken on a special X-ray machine used for mammograms only. We offer digital breast tomography which is more powerful than digital mammography for detection and decrease in call back rates.
Mammograms are called diagnostic when they are being done for one of the following reasons:
A new breast lump, pain, or nipple discharge was noticed by you or your doctor. Your recent screening mammogram showed something that requires more X-ray pictures and possibly a sonogram. Your last mammogram or sonogram showed something that is being closely followed.
