WHY WOULD I NEED BREAST IMAGING?

Diagnostic mammography exams and breast ultrasound are often requested to investigate a specific concern, either to identify a cause for symptoms or if a doctor has discovered an abnormality.

Screening mammography exams, on the other hand, use the same technology, but are requested to help detect disease before they cause symptoms and while they can still be successfully treated. Regular mammography screening is the best way to detect the smaller breast cancers before they can be felt.

Mayfair Diagnostics has been leading the way in breast imaging in Canada since we first opened our doors. We were the first in Western Canada to use state-of-the-art mammography technology that gives patients the option to adjust the level of breast compression during their exam, under the supervision of the technologist.
