A Mammogram is an X-ray picture of the breast. It can be used to check for breast cancer in women who have no signs of symptoms of the disease. It can also be used if you have a lump or other sign of breast cancer. Screening mammography is the type of mammogram that checks you when you have no symptoms. It can help reduce the number of deaths from breast cancer among women ages 40 to 70. The National Cancer Institute recommends that women age 40 or older have screening mammograms every 1 to 2 years.

In EDC, we provide such screening and typically we complement it with ultrasound to provide the most accurate results.
