How the Procedure Works

Mammography uses a minimal amount of x-rays to reveal the internal structure of the breast. X-rays pass more readily through the fatty tissue of the breast than through the blood vessels, muscle and other more dense tissues. The radiologist is trained to recognize the normal structure of the breast and detect any variation from the normal pattern.
