A mammogram is an x-ray examination of the breast. Using low doses of x-rays, a physician can receive images of the breast and detect any signs of breast cancer. Women who have no signs of breast cancer should still consider receiving mammograms on a regular basis from the age of 40, according to the American Cancer Society.
Lakeland Medical Associates uses digital mammography – a system where the x-rays are converted into digital images. This allows for better pictures and uses a lower dose of x-ray radiation.
We strive to make screenings at our facility as hassle-free as possible. You can count on our friendly staff to help you through the process, from start to finish.
Minor discomfort often occurs for many women, as the breast is compressed for the x-ray. The examination typically takes around 30 minutes, but can give you peace of mind for months and years to come.
Trust that our team will guide you through the process so that it goes as quickly as possible. Then, we will follow-up with you on any details regarding the examination within the next few weeks.
If you want a team that truly cares about your health, come to Lakeland Medical Associates for your digital mammogram.
