Mammography

Digital mammography is a safe computerized medical imaging technique, that uses X-rays in low doses, to obtain a high resolution image of the internal structure of the breast. This allows the detection of benign or malignant tumors and changes in breast tissue.

Digital mammography

Role of the Radiologist

Examination duration 15 to 20 minutes * If there are mammary prostheses, the examination may last up to 40 minutes.


Examinations COVERED by the RAMQ


PREPARATION

No deodorant, antiperspirant, powder or lotion under the arms or breasts.

Avoiding beverages and foods containing caffeine (cola, coffee, chocolate, tea) for 5-7 days before the mammography may help reduce the discomfort and sensitivity of the breast. If you wish, you may take a Tylenol or Advil tablet an hour before the exam, to reduce sensitivity during compression.

It is best not to have a mammography 7 to 10 days before menstruation due to an increased sensitivity of the breasts during this period.

When you have already had a mammography in another center, it is important to bring with you a CD with the images of your previous exams, if possible. This will help the radiologist, in comparing the images and, if necessary, preventing having other examinations.
