The Women’s Health Center offers digital mammograms which allow more accurate results than standard mammography. The procedure is specific to each patient’s unique needs.
- Screening mammograms are for patients who are not experiencing any symptoms. This is used to screen the breast for early cancers or abnormalities that may require additional imaging such as masses, calcifications or asymmetry in the breast.
- Screening mammograms can be done at the Women’s Health Center, Diagnostic Center or the Westside Medical Center in Dundee.
- Diagnostic mammograms are used when a patient has a symptom such as a lump, pain, nipple discharge, dimpling etc. to determine if there is an abnormality.
- The bilateral or unilateral diagnostic mammogram must be done at the Women’s Health Center so that a radiologist may have direct review of the study.
Unilateral mammograms (one breast only)
- Unilateral Mammograms are for follow-up studies of one breast, additional diagnostic imaging on a previous screening mammogram and for patients who have previously had a mastectomy.
- This exam must be performed at the Women’s Health Center
Back to Women's Center
- A ductogram evaluates a particular duct of the breast for abnormalities that may be the cause of nipple drainage.
