A mammography is an x-ray test of the breasts used to screen for potential medical concerns, such as detection of a lump, or to aid in diagnosis, such as determining whether a lump is a solid mass or a cyst filled with fluid. Regular mammography screenings are widely believed to be important in the early detection and prevention of breast cancer in women.

Digital mammography results in shorter exam times when compared to film-based mammography. The image quality is considered superior to film-based mammography and the use of digital technology offers greater image flexibility.
