A screening mammogram is a routine X-ray test of the breast (mammary glands). According to the American Cancer Society, a screening mammogram is used when the patient does not have any concerning symptoms such as a lump in the breast, nipple discharge or breast skin changes. This exam usually consists of two standard images of each breast. There are two types of mammograms available. Traditional mammograms are referred to as 2D. Digital breast tomosynthesis is called a 3D mammogram.

A diagnostic mammogram is used to evaluate abnormalities detected on a screening mammogram or because of special circumstances. It consists of two standard images of each breast plus more focused images of the area(s) of concern. The additional pictures allow for more accurate and effective characterization of the symptom.
Concerning symptoms include: a new lump in your breast, enlarged lymph nodes in the armpit, changes in the breast size, shape, skin texture, and/or color, skin redness, dimpling or puckering of the skin, scaliness of the breast, nipple pulling to one side, a change in direction of the nipple or new spontaneous bloody or clear nipple discharge from only one breast.

Breast tomosynthesis (3D mammograms) acquires an extensive imaging data set that is reformatted into multiple thin slices of the breast tissue. This allows the radiologist to look through the layers of normal breast tissue and detect small findings that may not be visible on the traditional 2D mammogram.
