Mammography:

State of the Art

A mammogram is an x-ray picture of the breast. It can be used to check for breast cancer in women who have no signs or symptoms of the disease. It can also be used if you have a lump or other sign of breast cancer.

Tips to prepare for a mammogram:

You’ll need to follow certain guidelines on the day of your mammography appointment. You should avoid applying the following substances, which can show up as white spots on the image:

  1. deodorants
  2. body powders
  3. perfumes
  4. ointments or creams on your breasts or underarms

Be sure to tell your radiologist before the exam if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding. In general, you won’t be able to receive a screening mammogram at this time, but if necessary, your doctor can order other screening methods, such as an ultrasound.

What happens during a mammogram?

Each breast fits onto a flat X-ray plate. A compressor will then push the breast down to flatten the tissue. This provides a clearer picture of the breast. You might have to hold your breath for each picture. You may feel a small amount of pressure or discomfort, but it’s usually very brief.

Digital mammograms:

A digital mammogram transforms the X-ray into an electronic picture of the breast that saves onto a computer. Images are immediately visible, so your radiologist doesn’t have to wait for the images.

Are mammograms safe?

Yes, mammograms are safe.

As with any type of X-ray, you’re receiving exposure to a very small amount of radiation during mammography. However, the risk from this exposure is extremely low.

Result

Images from a mammogram can help find calcifications, or calcium deposits, in your breasts. The test can also find cysts — which may come and go normally during some people’s menstrual cycles — and any cancerous or noncancerous lumps.

In this system, there are seven categories, ranging from zero to six. Each category describes whether additional images are necessary and whether an area is more likely to have a benign (noncancerous) or cancerous lump.
