Breast Imaging

What is Mammogram?

Mammogram is the leading modality to detect breast cancer in its early stages, which is when it is most curable. MMI offers a comprehensive suite of breast imaging services like 3D Digital Mammogram with tomosynthesis, Breast Ultrasound, Breast MRI, and specialised breast procedures including core biopsies and hookwire localisation. It’s all delivered by our specialist team of MRI radiographers, sonographers and radiologists.
