Mammography Equipment

Mammography Equipment

Mammography Equipment is still the modality of choice for screening of early breast cancer, since it is relatively fast, reasonably accurate, and widely available in developed countries. Breast cancers detected by mammography are usually much smaller (earlier stage) than those detected by patients or doctors as a breast lump. Mammography uses X ray to obtain a DETAILED image on film (Analog), or a digital image (Digital). Because radiologists are looking for small tumors, standards for mammography film and monitors are much higher so that they reflect smaller details (ie. X ray can be viewed on 1 MP (Mega Pixels) monitor, for mmao minimum of 5MP is required

Like all X-rays, mammograms use doses of ionizing radiation to create images. These images are then analyzed for any abnormal findings. It is normal to use lower-energy X-rays. Ultrasound is typically used for further evaluation of masses found on mammography or palpable masses not seen on mammograms. Ductograms are still used in some institutions for evaluation of bloody nipple discharge when the mammogram is non-diagnostic. MRI can be useful for further evaluation of questionable findings as well as for screening pre-surgical evaluation in patients with known breast cancer to detect any additional lesions that might change the surgical approach, for instance from breast-conserving lumpectomy to mastectomy. Other procedures being investigated include tomosynthesis.
