Mammography

Mammography

Jahmale Medical Solutions uses the Planmed Clarity 2-Dimensional digital mammography system for mammogram imaging. A mammogram is an x-ray examination of the breasts to detect and diagnose breast cancer and any other abnormalities. Mammography is the most effective imaging modality for detecting breast cancer at an early stage. Patients are advised to bring along previous images and reports for comparison if available.

  • Screening Mammography: As a preventive measure for symptomless women aged 40 and above, two views of each breast are taken and assessed by a Jahmale Specialist for any abnormalities. This procedure is recommended annually for women above 40 years old.
  • Diagnostic Mammography: Basic views with/without additional views of the breast to further evaluate an abnormality found during screening. This can also be used for women and men who have breast complaints such as a breast mass, nipple discharge, breast pain, or skin irritation. If any abnormality in confirmed screening, patients are referred to one of our partner referral hospitals within Liberia and the West African Region. Please contact us for further details.
