Digital Mammograms and Gynecomastia in Men

by Shearly (SU)
Gynecomastia is a condition in which males develop enlarged breasts. Often reversible, gynecomastia may still need to be evaluated with a mammogram (X-ray of the breast area). Digital mammograms, which offer higher resolution, extremely detailed imaging allow for specific manipulation, such as lightening or darkening, zooming in or adding contrast for better visibility by the radiologist.
