Mammography screening

Mammography screening

Mammography screening, ie breast cancer screening, is legally performed in Finland for women aged 50-69. An invitation for mammography screening is available every two years. The location of the breast cancer screening is determined by the municipality.

Finding changes early on ensures timely and efficient treatment. The screening is done by a qualified radiology nurse and takes 5 to 10 minutes. The results are analyzed by two specialized doctors who specialize in mammography examinations.

If necessary, mammography screening is supplemented by ultrasound examination. After the screening, the ultrasound is called by telephone to those whose screening images radiologists have deemed appropriate to supplement.
