Routine Check Ups are a Lifesaver
Along with a regular clinical breast exam, screening mammograms are a critical component of proper breast care. Using a low-dose X-ray, mammograms can detect lumps much earlier than they can be detected with a physical exam. Abnormalities identified by a mammogram require further testing to determine the nature of the issue and whether or not treatment is needed.
Diagnostic mammograms may be conducted if a screening mammogram detects an abnormality. During a diagnostic mammogram, the technician will take more images at different angles and may target certain areas of the breast for further imaging. Find A Physician
