Breast cancer screening or mammography

The City of Helsinki offers free-of-charge breast cancer screenings at two-year intervals to all women ages 50-68. On alternating years all women born either in an even or an odd year are invited to mammography screenings by personal letter.

Helsinki uses a Direct radiography system (DR) which makes it possible to detect cancer earlier than before. The treatment results are very good when detecting the tumour in an early stage.
