If indicated, you will undergo Ultrasound scanning or mammography of the breasts.

What is ultra sound scanning?

It is a painless imaging procedure, conducted by a doctor.

What is mammography ?

It is a special x-ray performed by a female radiographer who will take two images of each breast. You will stand in front of a special X-ray machine, and she will gently position each breast on a plate on the machine. Another plate will firmly press your breast and hold it still to take the image. The radiographer will repeat the steps to take a side view of the breast.

Can I talk to the radiographer?

Yes, communicating with your radiographer is important, especially if you have any concerns. They will be happy to answer any questions.

Will it hurt?

You may feel discomfort during a breast examination, scanning and mammography. Please tell the doctor, nurse or the radiographer if you feel any pain. They will work with you to make sure that the breast screening is as comfortable as possible. You can stop procedures at any time.

What is informed consent?

Informed consent is your voluntary decision about medical care, made with knowledge and understanding of the benefits and risks involved. When you fill in a registration form at CEDC, it is considered as informed consent.

Can I withdraw consent?

Yes, you can withdraw consent at any time throughout the procedure. If you are distressed or wish to stop, the breast screening can be halted, and your concerns addressed.
