Mammography Machine: Mammography machine is the process of using
low-energy X-rays (usually around
30 kVp) to examine the
human breast for diagnosis
and screening. The goal of mammography is the early detection of breast cancer, typically through
detection of characteristic masses or micro calcifications.
Most women know how
important it is to schedule a screening mammogram every two years once they
turn 50. The Canadian Cancer Society recommends you talk to your doctor about
screening options as soon as you turn 40. At Insight Medical Imaging, we recommend
you strongly consider annual screening mammograms once you turn 40, especially
if you have any of the risk factors associated with breast cancer or a family
history of breast cancer..
