Mammograms are specialized X-rays of the breast used to identify changes in the breast tissue. It is used to detect and diagnose breast disease in women who either have breast problems such as a lump, pain, or nipple discharge, as well as for women who have no breast complaints.
Mammography cannot prove that an abnormal area is cancer, but if it raises a significant suspicion of cancer, further testing or a biopsy may be recommended.
Digital Mammography at the Women's Imaging Suite
Within the tranquil, spa-like setting of the Women’s Imaging Suite in the new Olathe Medical Pavilion, we are dedicated to making every woman’s mammography experience as comfortable as it can possibly be.
A faster, sharper digital image.
Digital mammography is a faster process overall, with specialized X-rays of the breast recorded on an electronic digital receptor and displayed on a video monitor less than a minute later. With improved detail of certain breast structures, digital image clarity is assessed immediately to reduce unnecessary, and sometimes worrisome, callbacks.
But a softer total experience.
The Imaging Suite’s calming, comfortable environment welcomes you. Soft, disposable breast pads add cushioning to increase your comfort. Our understanding and mature staff and radiologists are exclusively dedicated to mammography.
