We offer a comprehensive breast imaging service using digital 3D mammography and high-resolution ultrasound machines to better visualise breast lumps and changes.
Mammography General Questions
A mammogram is an x-ray technique specifically designed for the breast. It is one of the ways to detect breast cancers at an early stage and also other changes in the breast. According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, one in seven women in Australia is diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, so early detection is crucial. 3D digital mammography combined with breast ultrasound results in the correct identification of cancer in over 90 per cent of cases.
Vision XRAY Group uses state-of-the-art 3D digital mammography and high-resolution ultrasound machines to enable better visualisation of breast lumps and changes in the breasts. Our comprehensive services for breast imaging include mammography, ultrasound, breast MRI and image-guided biopsies if required.
The Australian Breast Centre is a caring, convenient one-stop service for people who need investigation of breast symptoms. Consultation and imaging are done in the same session, and patients can discuss any concerns with the breast physician during their appointment. Vision XRAY Group offers Australian Breast Centres in its Martin Place and Dee Why practices. For more information, please visit our AUSTRALIAN BREAST CENTRE page.
What to expect during your mammogram appointment
- On the day of your mammogram, please bring any previous breast films.
- Please do not wear any talcum powder, body lotion or deodorant as they can appear in the images.
- During the mammogram, our skilled and caring technicians will ask you to stand in front of the machine, and they will take images of your breast at different angles.
- During the test, each breast will be squeezed (compressed) against the machine for a very short time. Some patients find this uncomfortable, but it’s necessary to get clear images. Please let the technician know immediately if it’s too painful.
