Breast Imaging/Mammography

Mammography is a specific type of imaging that uses a low-dose x-ray system to examine breasts. A mammography exam, called a mammogram, is used to aid in the early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases in women, typically through detection of characteristic masses and/or micro calcifications.

Halton Healthcare Oakville, Milton, and Georgetown Hospitals use Digital Radiography (DR). This means that the image is captured and is immediately electronically processed as a digital image.
