Digital mammography

Mammography is a fast, painless and accurate method used in mammology to diagnose breast diseases. Unlike ultrasound, a mammogram allows you to not only detect a tumor, but to see its size and determine the nature. Using this method, it is possible to detect a tumor in the early stages and to prevent a breast disease.

The study is comfortable, does no harm and takes only 10 minutes. The Planmed Nuance mammography unit provides excellent image quality with minimal patient exposure.

When conducting certain types of mammographic examinations, the patient needs special preparation:

  • Mammography is performed from 5 to 12 days of the menstrual cycle; women in menopause, in the absence of menstruation or with an irregular cycle - on any day of the cycle.
  • On the day of the study, the patient should not apply deodorizing agents and powder to the skin of the axillary areas.
  • If the patient has breast implants, it is necessary to warn the staff of the mammography office in advance so that the study is carried out by a specialist who is familiar with the radiological features of the implants.
  • The patient should be warned that after the end of the study she will have to wait for the doctor to make sure that the images are of satisfactory quality.
  • Before the study, the patient should remove jewelry, strip to the waist and put on a dressing gown that can be unfastened in front.

Mammography, as a regular mandatory examination, is recommended for women who have reached the age of forty. It is at this age that experts advise to do the first mammogram and keep a record of visits with a mammologist. After 50 years with a preventive purpose, the procedure is recommended to be performed annually.

Is it harmful to do a mammogram?

Many women fear whether it is harmful to have a mammogram, because this study uses x-rays. Of particular concern is the presence of existing tumors - would mammography be dangerous in this case? The answer is more than unequivocal: the x-ray dose received during the examination absolutely does not cause any concern. It does not go beyond the limits of permissible norms and does not possess a sufficient degree of carcinogenic activity. As for the presence of neoplasms, mammography is used, including for monitoring their activity and growth. Before prescribing a study, the attending physician must take into account all risk factors and direct him to the study, which will be informative in a particular case.

For those who are concerned about the effects of x-ray radiation, there is another way - you can go through a mammogram on a magnetic resonance imager. This study is called MR mammography or MRI of the mammary glands. The basis of MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) is not used x-ray radiation, the method is based on the principle of interaction of magnetic fields. This procedure is absolutely safe for the patient and practically has no contraindications (including age).

Breast MRI is recommended with the introduction of a contrast agent, which allows you to explore suspicious areas and detect malignancy even at the earliest stages.

Good afternoon, I rarely leave reviews, but to be honest, I'm glad to tears that I came across such a wonderful doctor. So far there was only an initial appointment, but the doctor calmly explained everything, was very careful, communicated very well, and this is so important in such a delicate topic. Thank you to the doctor that after so many years of practice you remain a human and thanks to the clinic k31 Petrovsky Vorota for keeping such good specialists

Dr. Sergei Evgenievich Malygin is the coolest oncologist surgeon, and I was lucky that he agreed to operate on me, because he doesn't take everyone. It is a great fortune to be his patient. Personally, I was looking for a doctor for 3 months about different countries, despite the fact that I needed an urgent operation. It sounds rather strange, but I took the risk of delaying the operation because a good result was more important to me than just surviving at any cost. After all, I have one body and one life, and it was important to both survive and preserve a beautiful body. This requires a high-level specialist. Serey Evgenievich is not only golden hands, but also a bright head and humanity, this is such a rare combination in the modern world, where a doctor is obliged to observe the basic rule, the covenant which he promised to follow in his work and it is so difficult to fulfill in practice, this is the “DO NOT HARM” rule. It is almost impossible to make it so that after the operation it would be better than it was before the illness ... This is an art that Dr. Malygin masterfully masters. In addition, Sergei Evgenievich is a man of a new formation, it is so valuable that such doctors have finally appeared in Russia, this is an absolutely disinterested person, this does him honor, and the "Honest Name" is dear in our time. I am very grateful to Doctor Malygin Sergey Evgenievich for his work, for his attitude, for his advice and support, for my recovery, for my new, improved body. If someone is looking for a doctor and I advise you to ask only to him, if he agrees, you are in good hands.

I was operated on by Alla Fyodorovna Kartashova back in 2004 with not the most positive diagnosis, now I only go to routine check-ups (fortunately!). And I can say that as a specialist and a person she is super! ONLY THANKS TO HER, I DIDN'T TOUCH MY HEAD after all this treatment. I trust her, and I didn’t even have a thought to go somewhere else, such as whether they would make my stitches more beautiful. You might think that I probably haven't seen any other doctors. I saw it. And free medicine sipped over the roof. Turn on your gut and look for your doctor who will really help. This is the only way to come to a good result, especially in the issue of oncology.
