Is Breast Imaging the Same as Mammography?
Yes and no. Mammography is a type of breast imaging used for early cancer detection.
What is a Mammogram?
Mammograms are X-rays of the breast that can sometimes detect cancer up to three years before it can be felt.
Screening mammograms typically involve two or more x-ray images per breast to make it possible to detect tumors or microcalcifications (tiny deposits of calcium) which sometimes indicate the presence of breast cancer.
When to Have a Mammogram
According to the American Cancer Society, women should be offered the choice to start screening with mammograms at about 40. Women aged 45 and up should get mammograms yearly.
Since there is no one size fits all approach, a breast cancer risk assessment should be done to determine your individual risk for breast cancer.
