X-ray mammograms are recorded onto large, flat sheets of black-and-white photographic film. Because the anatomical images vary tremendously from woman to woman, they are difficult to read. What may be considered normal for one patient could indicate a need for concern for another. In addition, some breast changes are just too subtle to recognize.
