Exams

There are two types of mammography exams: Screening mammography and Diagnostic mammography. Screening exam is batch screening. Asymptomatic patients are screened with the standard CC (Cranio-Caudal) and MLO (Medio-Lateral Oblique) views. Diagnostic exam is problem solving mammography. Patient either presents with a new problem like self discovered lump, pain, discharge or patient is called back by mammographer after abnormal screening exam for additional views or ultrasound. Mammographer must be present for interpretation of diagnostic mammograms and provide a management plan. Hence, screening mammogram should not be ordered on a patient with a palpable mass.
