Mammogram - Definition


Definition


A mammogram is an x-ray (a medical imaging technique based on the use of X-rays to see the inside of a body part) of the breasts. A mammogram is a little unpleasant for some women because of the need to compress the breast between two plates to obtain a good quality image. Performing regular mammograms is however strongly recommended to women at risk, because it is the best way to quickly detect lesions suggestive of breast cancer. Ideally, it should be done in the early days of the menstrual cycle. As part of routine screening for breast cancer, a mammogram is recommended in France for women between the ages of 50 and 74 years at a rate of once every two years.
