Mammography


What is Mammography?

Mammography is a simple, safe x-ray examination of the breast. Mammograms can show slight changes in the breast tissue and reveal abnormalities, including tiny cancerous tumors, when they are too small to be felt. When discovered early, most breast cancers can be effectively treated.

The Latest Technology: Digital Mammography

Both Doylestown Hospital and the Health & Wellness Center offer digital mammography, which captures the image of a breast electronically. As the breast tissue is compressed and scanned, the digital image appears instantly on the computer monitor and is simultaneously stored in the computer. One of the benefits of digital mammography is that the computerized breast image can be enlarged for a better view of dense tissue.

High Resolution Breast Ultrasound

Breast Ultrasound is only offered at Doylestown Hospital. It is used to assist mammography in the detection of abnormalities. With ultrasound the abnormalities can be categorized as a cyst or solid tumor/mass. The images are captured by the technologist and stored digitally.
