Full Field Digital Mammography (FFDM)
Mammography is an X-ray test of the breasts (mammary glands) used to screen
for breast problems. A mammogram is conducted to help screen for or to
diagnose breast cancer. Many small tumors can be seen on a mammogram before
they can be felt by a woman or her health care professional.
Cancer is most easily treated and cured when it is discovered at an early
stage. Mammograms do not prevent breast cancer or reduce a woman’s
risk of developing cancer. However, regular mammograms can reduce a woman’s
risk of dying from breast cancer by detecting a tumor when it is at a
more treatable stage.
We also offer breast ultrasound and breast biopsy for those who need a
more in depth screening or further breast care.
