Mammography

Mammography

Mammography refers to a chest x-ray that examines breast changes and tumors. Mammography is the primary method of breast imaging in people over 30 years of age after the onset of symptoms. You can also seek mammography to check your breasts, especially if you have a family history of breast cancer.

For women under 30 the primary method of breast imaging is ultrasoundDärefter bedöms från fall till fall om mammografi behövs.

Mammography pictures are taken by a trained radiologist. During imaging, the chest is pressed. The compression is momentary and the machine automatically releases the compression after the picture is taken. The reading of the mammography images is performed by a radiologist and the examination is supplemented, if necessary, by an ultrasound examination performed by a radiologist. In the case of ultrasound, it is possible to perform the necessary sampling to ensure a smoother treatment path.

During pregnancy and lactation, mammography is often not appropriate, but ultrasound examination is more appropriate.

We offer mammography in each of our locations. Our Helsinki office also offers stereotactic sampling.
