Mammogram

Routine Breast Cancer Screening and Breast Cancer Diagnosis

For More Information

Mammograms use low-dose X-rays to create detailed images of breast tissue. They can help your doctor detect breast cancer at the earliest-possible stage and identify the cause of breast problems, such as pain or masses. Mammograms can save lives. All Duke Health mammography locations perform 3D imaging using a new technology called digital breast tomosynthesis. The highly accurate images allow radiologists to detect breast cancer and other changes in breast tissue early and reduces the number of false alarms when compared to traditional 2D mammograms.
