Mammography Mammapoli Programms & Services

  • Services & Treatments

Screening mammography – Routine screening mammograms are pictures of the breasts, two on each side. These mammograms are done on a yearly basis. Screening mammograms are done on patients that are asymptomatic (without any problems) at the Curaçao Medical Center – Mammapoli (Mammography clinic) within the radiology department.
Diagnostic mammography – A diagnostic mammogram is different. It involves specialized pictures, an onsite radiologist, and potentially other services. This evaluation may be recommended for changes in the breast found by yourself, your provider or seen on imaging. Diagnostics are done in the radiology Department of Curaçao Medical Center.

  • Breast Health Facts

Did you know?
Excluding cancer of the skin, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women.
Does mammography make a difference in breast cancer prevention?
Numerous randomized trials and population-based evaluations of screening mammography have clearly shown that early detection of breast cancer through mammography greatly improved treatment options, the chances for successful treatment, and survival. (Source: American Cancer Society, Breast Cancer Facts and Figures, 2005-2006)

  • Digital mammography

Digital mammography takes an electronic image of the breast and stores it directly in a computer, allowing the recorded data to be enhanced, magnified, or manipulated for further evaluation. Film (analog) mammography units use film to both capture and display the image. The sensitivity of film (analog) mammography is somewhat limited, particularly in women with dense breasts (a population at higher risk for breast cancer).
