Mammography is a special type of x-ray imaging used to create detailed images of breast. Mammography uses low dose x-ray; high contrast, high-resolution and an x-ray system designed specifically for imaging the breast. Mammography plays an important role in early detection of breast cancers.
This test can find 85-90% of breast cancers in women and discover a lump up to two years before it can be felt. Once a lump is found the mammography can be a key factor in determining if the lump is cancerous. Georgetown Community Hospital is very proud to announce the addition of the latest advance in the fight against breast cancer: digital mammography.
Digital mammography provides superior imagery for a more accurate diagnosis. Other benefits include:
- 28% higher detection rate
- Improved image flexibility
- More accurate diagnosis
- Better visibility at the skin line
- Shorter exam times
- Less radiation exposure
