Mammography Guidelines

If a patient does not have family history of breast cancer or other abnormal conditions, she can start an annual screening mammography at age of 40, affirms Dr. Priyanka Grover, Breast Imaging Radiologist with Baptist Health South Florida. At young age, the doctor advises ultrasound and MRI instead of mammogram. However, if physicians see a finding on the ultrasound, they may recommend a mammogram. The expert urges all the men aged 40 and older to undergo screening mammogram once a year.
