Everything you need to know about Mammography
How Mammography scans work
Mammography with Tomosynthesis produces a detailed 3D view of your breast tissue from different angles. Both breasts are compared in the scan.
What to expect
On arrival you will be asked to complete a form and provide your medical history. In the mammogram room, a radiographer will explain the procedure. You’ll be asked to remove all your clothing from the waist up. Your breast will be placed onto a base plate on the x-ray machine and some compression will be applied. This may be uncomfortable but not painful. When you’re done, the images are checked by the radiologist.
