Mammography Machine

Mammography Machine: Mammography machine is the process of using low-energy X-rays (usually around 30 kVp) to examine the human breast for diagnosis and screening. The goal of mammography is the early detection of breast cancer, typically through detection of characteristic masses or micro calcifications.

Most women know how important it is to schedule a screening mammogram every two years once they turn 50. The Canadian Cancer Society recommends you talk to your doctor about screening options as soon as you turn 40.  At Insight Medical Imaging, we recommend you strongly consider annual screening mammograms once you turn 40, especially if you have any of the risk factors associated with breast cancer or a family history of breast cancer.
