Caption

Mammography. Female radiographer preparing a woman for a breast screening using X- rays. Mammography is an X-ray technique which reveals fine details of internal breast tissues. The breast is compressed into a flat plane between a plastic sheet and a metal X-ray plate. It is exposed to low-dose X-rays to obtain an image. Mammography is mainly used in the early detection of breast tumours whether they are benign lumps, cysts or malignant cancer. If a tumour is found on the mammogram, other techniques are used to find out if it is cancerous. Photographed in Tameside Hospital, Britain.
