Mammogram (Mammography)

Spire Roding Hospital in Redbridge offers a private mammogram (mammography) service to patients from Essex, east London and the surrounding area. Our service gives patients the opportunity to receive advice from highly experienced consultants and/or technincians about mammograms and to have the procedure carried out at their convenience in clean and comfortable surroundings. 

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.
