• Mammogram - Breast Imaging





A mammogram is a soft tissue x-ray of the breast. The breast is carefully positioned and compressed between 2 plates to spread out the tissue evenly by a lady technologist. The x-ray beam passes through the breast and that is captured on a workstation. The images are viewed on a 5 megapixel high resolution monitor and correlated with breast ultrasound when necessary.

Getting a high quality mammogram on a regular basis is the most effective way to detect breast cancer early.
The quality of the mammogram and its interpretation requires dedicated personnel. At Chennai breast centre, our team of technologists and doctors provide you the best possible chance of early detection.
