Mammography is a safe, low dose x-ray of the inside of your breast. Molokai General Hospital’s Radiology Department uses mammogram to help diagnose lumps or other abnormalities found during a breast exam and can show changes too small to feel by touch.
Inform your doctor or Mammography technologist if you have or had any of the following (as these may affect test results):
Try to schedule your mammogram for the week after your period, when your breasts are less tender.
Your health care provider will discuss the test results with you. Be sure to ask any questions you have about the test or results.
