What is Mammography
Mammography is designed to detect abnormal tissue in the breast. Many times this method can reveal lumps before they can be felt during a clinical examination. As a result, mammography helps women over age 40 and those in high-risk categories detect breast cancer in its earliest stages.
Using mammography, a variety of conditions can be detected in breast tissue that may require further testing, including:
- calcium deposits in ducts or other tissue
- masses or lumps
- dense areas appearing in the breast
- any suspicious change in breast tissue density since your last mammogram
Cape Cod Healthcare offers two state-of-the-art women’s health and imaging facilities on Cape Cod. Cape Cod Hospital’s new Cuda Women’s Health Center at the Wilkens Outpatient Medical Complex in Hyannis, and the Seifer Women’s Health and Imaging Center at Falmouth Hospital both offer digital mammography for screening and diagnostic mammograms. As well as at the Fontaine Medical Center in Harwich.
Digital mammography replaces X-ray film with solid-state detectors that convert X-rays into electronic signals. This allows electronic storage and transmission of images. Digital mammography allows radiologists to enhance the view to get the best possible image.
