For every 1,000 women who have a screening mammogram:

  • 100 are recalled to get more mammography or ultrasound images
  • 20 are recommended for a needle biopsy
  • 5 are diagnosed with breast cancer

What Is a Mammogram?

A mammogram is a specific type of breast exam used to aid in the early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases in women. This medical exam uses a noninvasive X-ray targeted to each breast, producing pictures that your doctor can use to identify and treat any abnormal areas, possibly indicating the presence of cancer.

What are the Mammogram Guidelines?

Women ages: 35-39 for the Baseline exam - and then at the age of 40+ women should get an exam annually

Why Are Mammograms Important?

Annual mammograms can detect cancer early — when it is most treatable. In fact, mammograms show changes in the breast up to two years before a patient or physician can feel them. Mammograms can also prevent the need for extensive treatment for advanced cancers and improve chances of breast conservation. Current guidelines from the American College of Radiology, the American Cancer Society, and the Society for Breast Imaging recommend that women receive annual mammograms starting at age 35 — even if they have no symptoms or family history of breast cancer.
