Caption

Menopausal breast. Coloured X-ray mammogram of a woman's breast during menopause (age unspecified). Mammography is an X-ray technique that is used to examine the soft tissues of the breast. Its main use is in screening women for breast cancer, which is more common in older women. The milk-secreting glands in the breast deteriorate during menopause, and are gradually replaced by fatty connective tissue.
