About Our Services
Mammography is an X-ray test of the breasts (mammary glands) that is used to diagnose breast cancer. The resulting X-ray picture is called a mammogram. A mammogram is done to help screen for or diagnose breast cancer. Many small tumors can be seen on a mammogram before they can be felt by a woman or her doctor.

And if there is an abnormal finding, these rapid results enable us to act quickly in the battle against breast cancer.
