What is a Diagnostic Mammogram?
A Mammogram is an X-ray picture of the inner structures of the breast taken to detect breast cancer. A Diagnostic Mammogram may be performed if you or your physician has identified signs or symptoms, including lumps, discharge or other changes to your breasts that need further evaluation. A Diagnostic Mammogram may also be performed if you have a history of breast cancer, prior high-risk biopsy result or for short-term follow-up of a previous finding.
During a Diagnostic Mammogram, special views of the breast may be obtained, depending on the finding, and an Ultrasound may be performed. Utilizing the latest technology, Fairfax Radiology offers the highest quality digital imaging process, providing you and your physician a convenient and complete breast imaging experience—as well as peace of mind.
You will get the results of the Mammogram before you leave the office.
