Early diagnose increases the chances of better treatment in all cases. Orhun Medical Center has equipped with a breakthrough technology for the breast imaging. We recommend that all women above the age of 40 to have a regular digital mammogram check-up, once a year.

It is a fairly new technique for mammary glands imaging in order to diagnose the neoplasm presences and other diseases. This method is becoming more and more widespread and accepted within clinical practice thanks to its advanced analytical capabilities, diffusion and storage of the obtained data.

During a mammogram, a patient’s breast is placed on a flat support plate and compressed with a parallel plate called a paddle. An x-ray machine produces a small burst of x-rays that pass through the breast to a detector located on the opposite side. The detector transmits electronic signals to a computer to form a digital image. The images produced are called mammograms.
