Mammography uses a low dose x-ray for either screening for or diagnosis of breast disease.
What To Expect
The breast tissue is gently compressed by the mammography unit and low dose x-rays are used to produce two images of the breast tissue on each side of the chest.
Please wear comfortable two-piece clothing as you will need to change from the waist up. Do not use antiperspirant as it contains aluminium, which will show up on the scan.
