Healthy breast. Digitised coloured mammogram (X- ray) of a healthy breast. The milk ducts (green) carry milk from the lobules where it is produced to the nipples. A mammogram is taken to check for tumours that are too small to be found by physical examination alone. The successful treatment of breast cancer depends on its early detection. Research has shown that mammography increases the early detection rate of the disease, improving the chance of survival.
