What is Mammography?

Mammography is a medical imaging technique primarily used for the early detection and diagnosis of breast cancer. It involves the use of low-dose X-rays to create detailed images of the breast tissue. These images, called mammograms, can help identify abnormalities such as tumors, cysts, and other changes in breast tissue that may be indicative of cancer or other conditions.

What is the importance of a Mammogram?

Mammograms are an essential tool in breast cancer screening because they can often detect tumors before they can be felt during a physical examination.

Mammography plays a crucial role in early detection and improved outcomes for breast cancer, as finding and treating cancer at an early stage can increase the chances of successful treatment and survival.
