MAMMOGRAPHY
Digital mammography uses low dose x-rays to produce diagnostic images of the breast tissue. A study sponsored by the National Cancer Institute revealed that digital mammography detects up to 28 percent more cancers than traditional mammography. The American Cancer Society recommends routine mammograms for women older than 40.
