Mammography is a type of breast tissue imaging that uses low-dose X-rays for the early detection of cancer. In modern medicine, testing with mammography machines is commonly performed for both diagnostic and common screening procedures. Thus, mammography is performed both in patients who are referred for such an examination because of the appearance of alarming symptoms and in women without any symptoms aged 40 years and older. Regular mammograms help to significantly reduce the number of deaths from breast cancer, as early detection of breast cancer by mammography allows for prompt and effective treatment. During a mammogram, the patient's breast is placed between two plates that compress and flatten the tissue so an even image can be obtained. A small dose of X-rays scans the breast from two directions and then processes it into two images. Depending on the technology used to process the results, mammography may provide an analog image, in the form of a film of the X-ray image, or a digital record captured on computer media. Based on the results that mammography provides, the radiologist reads the lesions and clarifies the description. If a radiologist reads the abnormalities during a mammogram, they may later undergo more invasive tests, such as a biopsy. First-time mammograms should be performed at least every two years because they are highly effective at detecting the first signs of cancer. Although mammography involves the use of a small amount of X-rays, the clear advantage of the benefits over the possible effects of radiation is overwhelming and indisputable. Therefore, mammography machines find their use in all hospitals, clinics and diagnostic clinics.
