MSU's Department of Radiology offers digital mammography services. Mammography is an x-ray examination of the breast tissue. The image produced by this process is called a mammogram. Although mammography does involve a small amount of radiation, it can help detect problems within breast tissue long before they can be felt. Mammography is the most sensitive method for the detection of breast cancer.
