Digital mammography & breast imaging

Clinical Department

Digital mammography & breast imaging


Mammograms are offered to patients at both The Lister Hospital and Chelsea Outpatient Centre, whichever is most convenient for you. We have a specialist team of Consultant Breast Care Surgeons, Breast Radiologists and a breast care nurse available throughout the week.

A mammography examination, or mammogram, is simply an x-ray of your breasts. A specialised machine will take between 20 – 30 minutes to image the breasts as clearly as possible, using low dose radiation. Mammograms are the most effective tools for detecting breast cancer early in women over the age of 40. Where a patients is less than 40, ultrasound is the best initial test to check breast problems although a radiologist will be consulted with about each individual case.

The results and images will be sent to your referring clinician within 24 hours.

Our breast care consultants may also recommend additional breast imaging procedures like needle biopsies, fine needle aspirations and localisations
