Mammography

A mammogram is an x-ray picture of the breast. It can be used to check for breast cancer in women, who have no signs or symptoms of the disease. It can also be used if you have a lump or other sign of breast cancer.

At Onco-Life Cancer Centre, we house a state-of-the-art Siemens MAMMOMAT1000 Mammography X Ray System which facilitates normal, spot, magnified and biopsy X-Rays. In order to ease patient discomfort and aid precise positioning, the machine uses foot switch operated motorised column-carriage and motorised compression device. Obviously, patient safety and comfort is one of the leading benefits of this machine. We’re glad to have taken the standards of Mammography in Chiplun and Mammography tests in Chiplun to a all-together new level with these advancements.
