Mammographic Density

Mammography is a method of using low-energy X-rays (usually about 30 kVp) for diagnosis and examination of the human breast. Mammography helps to detect breast cancer early, usually by identifying characteristic masses or microcalcifications. Mammograms, as with all X-rays, use doses of ionizing radiation to create images. Then, these images are examined for anomalous findings. The use of lower-energy X-rays is common, usually Mo than those used for bone radiography. The mammography is accompanied by ultrasound, ductography, positron emission mammography (PEM), and magnetic resonance imaging ( MRI). Ultrasound is usually used for further measurement of masses not seen on mammograms found on mammograms or observable masses. Ductograms are also used in some hospitals where the mammogram is non-diagnostic for evaluating bleeding nipple discharge.
