What is a mammogram (mammography)?

Mammography is a type of scanning that uses low dose x-rays to examine the breast. It is used to help identify breast cancer in its early stages as it can find cancers that are too small to feel.

Having a mammogram

During a mammogram the radiographer will position your breast in a mammography unit.

Your breast will be placed on a special platform and compressed with a paddle. This is necessary so all the breast tissue can be x-rayed. The radiographer will then walk behind a screen and activate the machine.

The whole procedure will take around 30 minutes.
