About Mammography

Mammography

A mammogram is an X-ray image of the breast that is taken to check for breast cancer.

It is used to detect early signs of breast cancer and is also used to help with the diagnosis of breast cancer. A mammogram is generally performed on women who are over the age of 40, or on women who have a family history of breast cancer. In some cases, the mammogram may be performed in conjunction with an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), if breast cancer is suspected.

A mammogram involves placing the breasts between a machine that takes X-ray images, which are then interpreted by radiologist. The patient may need to make a follow up appointment where they will receive and discuss the results with the doctor.

Recommended for
  • Women over the age of 40

Before Mammography abroad

It is best to schedule the mammogram for the week after menstruation, as this is the time of the month where the breasts are the least tender. Some patients find that taking prescription pain relief ahead of the procedure can help relieve any discomfort.

The patient will be asked to remove any jewelry and clothing from the upper body ahead of the procedure and a gown is provided to change into.

How is it performed

The patient will be asked to stand in front the machine and the breast is placed in between the 2 sides of the machine. A technician is there with the patient to help guide the breast and machine into position.

The 2 sides of the machine are pressed against the breast which may cause some discomfort. The patient will need to remain still in order to take an accurate image. X-ray images are then taken and displayed on a computer screen which is viewed by the radiologist. This process is then repeated to take X-ray images of the other breast.

The radiologist will then make a report which is sent to the doctor who will deliver the results to the patient at a follow up appointment.

Procedure duration

The Mammography takes 25 to 30 minutes.
