Mamografía digital | ESCANO

Digital  Mammography  is an  X-ray examination of the mammary gland . It is the most effective method  to detect a possible breast cancer , even in a very early phase of the disease, allowing a better prognosis of cure.

It is suggested that  women over 40 years of age  have Mammography  every one or two years as a preventive measure , following the recommendation of the treating physician.

Digital  Mammography  is a non-invasive procedure that helps to notice subtle differences in tissues with low doses of X-rays, which facilitates the diagnosis of breast diseases even without symptoms.

We provide the Mammography service in  Medellín  at Calle 59 No. 50 A 14 (Prado Centro neighborhood).

The Diagnostic Imaging Technologist positions the patient's breast on a rectangular support. On top of the unit is a device that supports and compresses the breast in a controlled manner to enable imaging from different angles.

Breast compression is necessary to flatten and spread the breast tissue, as well as allow for a lower X-ray dose. The technologist will reposition the patient during the procedure to perform routine views: up, down, and medial-lateral oblique . The process should be repeated for the other breast. The patient should remain still and hold her breath for a few seconds when prompted to reduce the possibility of blurred images.

The exam takes approximately twenty (20) minutes. The images are delivered recorded on a CD.
