Diagnostic Mammography

Diagnostic mammography is the specific evaluation of a patient with signs or symptoms of a breast disorder, or with screening-detected abnormalities. The goal of this radiographic evaluation is to determine further treatment plans and whether or not a biopsy is needed. Diagnostic mammography is to be distinguished from screening mammography in that the latter is done on patients who are asymptomatic. The minimum requirements for a diagnostic mammogram are cranio-caudal (CC) and medio-lateral oblique (MLO) views. Additional views may be required, but are considered part of the complete diagnostic examination.
