• Mammography is a well-established screening tool that uses low-dose X-rays to evaluate breast tissue for the possible presence of cancer.
  • A mammography exam, called a mammogram, is an excellent method to ensure early detection and improved prognosis, by revealing changes in the breasts that may have gone undetected during a clinical examination by a doctor or self-examination by the patient.
  • At SCP, all mammograms are performed by qualified mammographers.
  • A routine mammogram should be done once a year from the age of 40.
  • Patients who have a strong family history (grandmother, mother, sister) of breast cancer, should discuss the possibility of screenings from an earlier age with their doctor.
