Mammograms are one of the most important tools in the early detection of breast cancer. This low-dose X-ray can reveal both benign (non-cancerous) and cancerous growths when they are too small to be detected by you or your health care provider. With a screening mammogram, it is possible to detect micro-calcifications (tiny deposits of calcium in the breast, which can sometimes indicate the potential presence of an early breast cancer) or a tumor that cannot be felt.

MemorialCare Breast Centers are equipped with state-of-the-art digital mammography. During digital mammograms, a special detector is used to convert X-ray energy into a digital picture almost instantaneously. This technology makes taking mammograms faster and more convenient than film mammograms.
To help promote accuracy, all screening mammograms are double-read by a radiologist and a computer-aided detection system.
Tomosynthesis (3D) mammography is the current state-of-the-art technology for imaging dense breasts. Tomosynthesis uses digital x-ray technology to capture multiple images of the entire breast from different angles to produce high-resolution, 3D images, enabling radiologists to “see through” the dense breast tissue and find cancer that may be hiding within it.
Tomosynthesis provides more accurate results with fewer false positives, thus lowering recalls while increasing cancer detection rates.
