Mammography is a screening and diagnostic procedure used to detect cancer and/or other breast disease. A mammogram provides an outline picture of the breast compiled from x-rays taken from above and from the side of the breast.
Both breasts are x-rayed during the exam to provide comparative images. There may be slight discomfort due to the compression of the breast tissue, but we will make it as comfortable as possible.
At BayView, we have a Women Only – Private Waiting Area – this will give you an opportunity to privately prepare for your exam. #BayViewRadiology #TampaBay #PatientCentricity #Women #HumanizeHealthcare
