Understanding
Mammography

Routine screening mammograms can help save your life. We want you to feel ready to take charge of your breast health by knowing what to expect from this experience. 

What Is Mammography? 
A mammogram is an X-ray examination of your breast. The latest digital mammography technology takes very detailed digital images of your breasts. These images help your doctor detect breast cancers, benign tumors and cysts before you can even feel them. 

When Should I Get a Mammogram? 
Many factors determine when you should have a mammogram, such as your family history, risk factors and age. Starting at age 25, you should get a clinical breast exam every 1 to 3 years. If you have a higher-than-average risk of breast cancer, discuss early mammography and ultrasound screening with your health care provider. Otherwise, the baseline age for mammograms is 40, and you should have them done yearly after this age. 

Are There Different Types of Mammograms? 
Mammography may be used either for screenings or to diagnose a symptom. A screening mammogram takes an X-ray to detect breast changes when you have no signs of breast cancer. A diagnostic mammogram can diagnose unusual breast changes, such as a lump, pain, nipple thickening or discharge or a change in breast size or shape.

Precise Mammogram Technology That Gives You Answers

At AdventHealth Shawnee Mission, we use the most advanced tools in digital mammography, including 3D mammography and computer-aided detection. These tools allow our imaging specialists to detect subtle differences between tissues and pinpoint areas of concern — well before they can be detected by touch. 

After your mammogram, a radiologist will use computer-aided detection tools to read the digital images, looking for any signs of abnormality including asymmetries, irregular areas of increased density and clusters of small calcium deposits. Your images can be enhanced by computer technology, stored digitally and even sent electronically between your physicians.
