Breast Cancer Screening

Breast Ductogram

A ductogram is a procedure that uses contrast enhanced mammography to determine the cause of an abnormal nipple discharge. A tiny plastic tube is placed in the duct and a small amount of contrast medium is injected into the duct. Mammograms are then taken to determine if a mass is present in the duct.

Abnormal nipple discharge may represent a benign breast condition but should be evaluated by a physician.
