CMZ DIGITAL MAMMOGRAPHY @ OCTOBER 2012

CMZ AVP 9.

Ciudad Medical Zamboanga is the first hospital in Western Mindanao to acquire a digital mammography system with the installation of the Siemens Mammomat Inspiration last October 2012.

The acquisition of the Digital Mammography system augments the services of the Ciudad Medical Zamboanga Breast Wellness Center.

I would like to share these Breast Cancer articles in relation to Mammography.

There continues to be discussions whether mammography screening should start at 40 or 50 years old. The U.S. advocates Mammography starting at 40 years old while the U.K. and Canada starts at 50 years old.

High risk patients for Breast Cancer usually starts earlier, although, generally I would not suggest mammography for those younger than 40 years old since dense breasts is one of the main limitations of Mammography .

It is best to talk to your physician about the advantages and limitations of Mammography to get the most out of the examination!
