Mammography is a specialized medical imaging technique that utilizes low-dose X-rays to capture detailed images of breast tissue. Physicians use mammography primarily for early detection and diagnosis of breast conditions, including breast cancer. These images help identify potential abnormalities, such as tumours or calcifications, enabling timely and targeted treatments for better patient outcomes. Our dedicated team of medical professionals and advanced equipment ensure accurate and reliable mammography services to prioritize your breast health.

Why is it done?

  • Early Detection: Mammography is essential for the early detection of breast cancer, allowing for timely diagnosis and improved treatment outcomes.
  • Screening Program: Ontario, Canada, has a breast cancer screening program that recommends regular mammograms for women between the ages of 50 and 74 to detect cancer in its early stages.
  • High Prevalence: Breast cancer is one of the most prevalent cancers in Ontario, making mammography a crucial tool for detecting and managing the disease.
  • Risk Assessment: Mammograms are used to assess breast cancer risk in patients with a family history of the disease or other risk factors.
  • Monitoring Progress: For patients with a history of breast cancer, mammography is used to monitor treatment effectiveness and detect potential recurrences.
  • Non-invasive: Mammography is a non-invasive procedure, making it a safe and widely accessible method for breast screening.
