Mammography

What’s this?

Radiological exploration of the breast is mammographie. It is an examination using a dedicated device. This is a radiological examination of choice in the exploration of the breast (breast screening). It is based on X-ray

For the quality of the image and a lower irradiation, it is necessary to compress the breast. To reduce the discomfort of compression, it is advisable to review the first part of the menstrual cycle.

Mammography uses x-ray, so you must notify the x-ray clinic in case of pregnancy or even if you suspect being pregnant. The amount of X-rays delivered during this examination is small, it represents about 4 hours of exposure to natural sunlight.

Your radiologist will ask you questions about your personal and family history. Do not hesitate to talk about any of your concerns to the medical team around you.

Mammography should be taken between the ages of 40 to 74 years, particularly when symptoms are detected or even if no symptoms exist.

It is usually proposed at the age of 40 years but your doctor may have prescribed earlier by checking your background.

Breast ultrasound

Breast ultrasound often complements mammography, especially when breasts are dense.
