Mammography uses a low-dose x-ray for breast examination. Mammography helps your doctor check for early signs of breast cancer. Mammography can show breast tissue changes up to two years before you or your doctor can feel them. Current guidelines from the American Medical Association and the American College of Radiology recommend that beginning at age 40 women receive annual mammograms.
Mammography services are available at the MMC Breast Care Center located on our Scarborough Campus, at the Falmouth Family Health Center in Falmouth, at our Brighton Campus on Brighton Avenue in Portland, and at our Main Campus on the Western Promenade in Portland.
