TRADITIONAL RADIOLOGY AND MAMMOGRAPHY
Radiography (RX), or radiological examination, uses type X electromagnetic radiation to analyse a skeletal segment or an area (thorax, abdomen). The radiation produced passes through the patient’s body and forms an image of the segment or area being examined on the x-ray. Radiography is mainly performed to document bone degeneration (arthrosis), inflammatory alteration (arthritis), possible metastases or bone lesions resulting from trauma.
The mammography is a particular breast X-ray. It is a very simple examination that does not cause any pain apart from a slight and momentary discomfort due to the breast compression by the equipment used which is necessary in order to obtain a clear and precise image. It is performed in an upright position, bare-breasted placing the breast on the proper support. Two X-rays are usually taken for each breast in order to completely visualise the mammary gland. The exam lasts a few minutes. It is the only method that allows the neoplasia diagnosis even at an advanced phase.
