Mammography

A mammogram is a special type of x-ray that is used to detect breast abnormalities.  It is used to detect and evaluate breast abnormalities.

Taranaki Radiology provides mammography using the latest digital technology.

A mammogram is an x-ray performed by a trained professional called a mammographer who accurately positions and compresses the breast (crucial for high quality images) and checks the images immediately after for quality.  Images are taken of each breast at different angles.  At Taranaki Radiology we also perform breast tomosythesis, which takes multiple images of the entire breast.
