Mammography is a radiological examination of the breast that lets us visually depict even the slightest changes in tissue.
For this exam, you breast is positioned between two plastic plates. In order to produce as clear an image as possible, you breast is carefully compressed between the two plates during imaging.
To make an exact diagnosis, we take two images per breast from different angles. This procedure takes just a few minutes.
After the exam, the pictures are available immediately as digital images and can be quickly and accurately evaluated. You will receive your results just a short time after the test, so you can promptly arrange further treatment with your attending physician without long waiting periods and uncertainties.
If a change is detected in your breast during the mammogram, we can offer you an ultrasound examination (sonography) of the breast, as well as a vacuum punch biopsy, if needed, in consultation with your attending physician.
