In New Zealand, breast cancer is the most common cancer found in women. 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer at some time in their life. By having regular mammograms, the detection of breast cancer in the early stages increases treatment options. 


It is important to know your breasts and to remember not all breast symtoms are caused by cancer. If you have any breast problems, please consult with your GP.

Here at Broadway Radiology, we offer Breast Tomosynthesis. This technique 'sees through' dense breast tissue by using state of the art equipment which allows our Radiologists to see the breast in 3 dimensions, rather than the traditional 2 dimensional image. 


Ladies. If you are pregnant, or think you might be please tell a member of staff before you have your mammogram. The tech can then talk to you about the issues surrounding radiation and pregnancy.



  • Please do not use deodorant, talcum powder, perfume or lotion from your waist up on the day of your mammogram.
  • If your breasts are particularly tender, please take your preferred form of pain relief prior to your appointment. 



  • You will be asked to fill in a questionnaire about your breast health history. 
  • You will be asked to remove your clothing from the waist up and a gown will be provided.
  • Usually there will be two images of each breast taken in different positions, though there may be more necessary to adequately visualise all your breast tissue.



  • After your examination has been completed, you may be asked to wait whilst one of our onsite Radiologists determines whether all the necessary images have been obtained.
  • Every set of mammogram images are reported by two of our Radiologists. Once this has been done, a report will be sent to your referring doctor who can discuss your results with you.


For any questions you may have before or after your examination, please Contact Us.
