Mammography at Pinehill Hospital

What is a Mammography?

Mammography uses low-dose X-ray imaging to see inside your breasts. It examines your breasts for cancer and can detect cancer when it is small and before a lump can be felt. Mammography helps the early detection of breast cancer and other breast diseases when they are easiest to treat.

Mammography is used as both a screening and diagnostic tool.

  • Screening mammography - looks for signs of breast cancer in women who don’t have any breast symptoms or problems. Typically, two different angles of X-ray images are taken for each breast.
  • Diagnostic mammography - looks at a woman’s breast if she has breast symptoms or if a change has been detected on a screening mammogram. It may be used to screen women who have been treated for breast cancer. Extra images of the breast are often taken.
