Caption: Normal breast. Mammogram showing the normal appearance of the breast of a mature woman (aged unspecified, probably around 40-45 years old). Mammography is an X-ray technique that is used to examine the soft tissues of the breast. Its principal use is in screening women for breast cancer. The glandular (milk-secreting) component of the breast, the white areas of the image, decreases as a woman approaches menopause. Glandular tissue becomes replaced by adipose tissue, a fibrous connective tissue packed with fat cells: mammograms of post-menopausal women are generally less dense in appearance.
