What is Breast Imaging?
Breast Imaging collectively refers to the imaging studies that diagnose diseases of the breast. This includes the use of x-rays (i.e. mammography), ultrasound scans and MRI scans to screen or evaluate breast abnormalities. Breast biopsies can then be performed in our mammography suite to confirm whether a breast abnormality is cancerous.
Our subspecialised breast imaging services are provided by subspecialty-trained breast radiologists and radiographers, using a wide range of equipment tailored for the needs of various breast conditions.
The management of breast diseases involves a multidisciplinary care team to provide comprehensive care for our patients.
Is Breast Imaging Safe?
Although radiation is used in mammography, the dose is low and safe. Nevertheless, pregnant patients are required to inform the radiographer before the mammogram. It is safe for female patients who are breast feeding to go for a mammogram.
