Classic CR System with FDA Approved Mammogaraphy
A base line mammogram is recommended after the age of 35 years and regular yearly screening after 40 years of age, especially more so in those with family history of disease. Regular mammography screening helps detect cancer early and thus save many precious lives. It is also advisable prior to HRT (Hormone replacement therapy), in any skin changes, nipple discharge, persistent pain, lump etc. Mammograms and ultra-sound scans are complimentary investigations and help detect lesions that may not be apparent in one investigation. Mammography is however highly sensitive in fatty breasts and is the recommended investigation for screening.
