About Mammography

Mammography uses low-dose x-ray technology to detect the presence of breast tumors and distinguish between cancerous and non-cancerous growths. It is commonly recognized as an essential early intervention and diagnostic tool for women. However, it is also used for men with certain symptoms.  Annual mammograms are recommended for all women over the age of 40 for breast cancer prevention and early intervention.
