Mammography is a key component in the early detection of breast cancer. This video explains the benefits of South Bay Hospital’s digital mammography services.
Traditional mammography requires the compression of the breast tissue, which is photographed using conventional X-ray technology. However, digital mammography offers more comfortable and effective screening outcomes for patients. The procedure typically takes less time as well, allowing patients to return to their normal activities as soon as possible. If you are 40 or older, getting a yearly digital mammogram could help you better manage your breast health.
