A mammogram is a low-dose X-ray that generates an image of a woman's breast, allowing radiologists to detect the presence of breast cancer or other breast diseases.

Guidelines dictate that all women should receive an annual screening mammogram beginning at age 40, with the exception of women with increased risk due to genetic history (in such cases women should consult their physician for early testing). Computer Aided Detection (CAD) is used in Digital mammograms, which enhances the radiologists ability to detect even the smallest abnormality. A diagnostic mammogram is performed when a woman or her physician have discovered an abnormal symptom or as a follow-up to a previous mammographic finding.

Russell Regional Hospital has a brand new state of the art Lorad Selenia digital mammography system. This is the leading edge mammography and is superior to regular mammography.
