Mammography  - Why  and  How ?

Breast  cancer  is  ranked  number one cancer  among the adult Indian female population  especially  in  the urban  and metropolitan regions (ICMR-PBCR data). In  the  rural  areas  it is ranked  second  after cancer  of  uterine cervix.Hence  early  detection  of breast cancer  through screening  is the only  means  to  reduce  the  burden  of  morbidity  and  mortality in our women.Xray  Mammography  serves  as an excellent  screening  method for  this purpose.  It  is  a specialised  radiological  examination of  the  female  breasts  using  a  dedicated  Mammographic Xray machine.
