A Mammogram is an X-ray image of breast tissue. It can detect calcifications, cysts, fibroadenoma (non-cancerous breast lumps) and cancer. Breast tissue is quite dense, therefore a mammography unit is designed to increase the quality of the images without increasing the radiation. This is achieved with a paddle that compresses the breast against a platform to produce images on various angles.
