Mammography

Specialized very low dose x-ray examination that involves compressing the breasts without pain for a couple of seconds but producing high detailed picture that, in experienced hands, picks up very breast cancer but also useful to assess symptoms like breast pain or swelling, skin pulling , breast lumps and nipple discharge.

Mammographic Breast Localization

Similar process to the ultrasound localization but mammography is used often because the lesion is a small cluster of micro-calcification. These small clusters which are not felt on examination of the breast could represent very early breast cancer and therefore need removal after the wire tip is placed within them.
