What is Mammography?

Mammography is the x-ray examination of the breast used to detect cysts and cancer. Two images of each breast may be taken: one top to bottom view, the other from a  side view.

Mammography is one of the best methods to find a cancer before it can be felt.​

Mammography, biopsies, galactograms and wire localizations  of the breast are performed at the Breast Health Centre at Saskatoon City Hospital.

Screening mammography performed bi-annually on women over 50 is done at the Screening Program for Breast Cancer.
