Radiographic examination of the breasts for diagnostic purposes.

Mammography

Mammography is the process of using low-energy X-rays to examine the human breast and is used as a diagnostic and a screening tool. The goal of mammography is the early detection of breast cancer, typically through the identification of characteristic masses and/or micro-calcifications.  Because it is estimated that one out of every eight women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime, DIA offers highly accurate digital mammography and computer aided detection (CAD) along with their medical training and expertise, to increase the likelihood of early detection of breast disease.
