  • Although not all lesions in breast tissue are detectable by X-ray examination, many lesions often can be detected by mammography before they are palpable in the breast by physical examination. (britannica.com)
  • However, in observational studies where everybody is invited or recommended to undergo mammography screening, we have to make assumptions on risk of death from breast cancer among the uninvited women. (medscape.com)
  • This study was the first stepping stone in our ongoing research to gain a better understanding of the electromagnetic properties of breast tissue," said Steven Poplack, MD, professor of radiology at Dartmouth Medical School and co-director of breast imaging and mammography at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Centre.

  • Always look for the MQSA certificate at the mammography facility, which is required to be displayed, and indicates that the facility met the national baseline standards for mammography. (fda.gov)
  • During the procedure, the breast is compressed by a dedicated mammography machine to even out the tissue , to increase image quality, and to hold the breast still (preventing motion blur). (bionity.com)
  • Mamma is Latin for breast and mammography is a type of breast X-ray that uses only a limited amount of radiation. (netdoctor.co.uk)
  • If successful, researchers say, the new technology could provide sharply improved images of early cancerous tissue at lower radiation doses than used by current film-based mammography and increase access to quality radiological care for millions of women in. (chicagotribune.com)
  • MRI is a method of imaging the breast that does not involve radiation, and is used in conjunction with mammography for imaging the breast. (oncolink.org)
  • In 2009, based on evidence that the benefit-risk ratio for mammography screening is higher among women over 50 and with less frequent screening, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) reversed its previous recommendation of mammography every one to two years beginning at age 40, and recommended routine screening every two years starting at age 50, the researchers noted.
