Mammography

Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in women in both developed and developing countries . In recent years there was an increase in diagnosis in the early stages given by the use of mammography, breast physical examination and regular broadcast on the general population of instructions on breast self-examination. This activity coupled with an adequate public education campaign led to early stages diagnosis in a substantial proportion of patients, achieving an improved prognosis and overall survival.

Mammography is the best imaging method currently available to us to detect minimal breast lesions, mainly of small carcinoma that are manifested only by micro calcifications or tumors less than 1cm. in diameter, non-palpable during the medical examination. Remains the only screening method for any malignancy which proved to be effective by randomized studies, detecting 95% of cases of breast cancer.
