A valuable and life saving examination for women
A mammogram is a low-dose x-ray of the breast. Mammograms are performed for two major reasons:
a) First in women with breast symptoms, to detect a possible cause for their symptoms (a diagnostic mammogram), and
b) Secondly, to detect early signs of breast cancer in women who do not have breast symptoms (a screening mammogram). The x-ray dose from a mammogram is very low. It has not been proven to cause any harmful effects.
At our clinic we use an advanced technology digital mammography equipment to ensure you are exposed to the minimum amount of radiation needed to obtain high quality images.
Please bring any previous mammograms or ultrasound you may have with you on the day of your examination.
