Ductography

Ductography is a procedure that looks at the inside of the milk ducts to further evaluate the causes for concerning nipple discharge.  A small ductographic cannula is placed within the discharging milk duct and X-ray dye is injected through a syringe.  Only a few drops are needed to entirely visualize the ductal system.  The technologist then takes two images of the breast to show the number of lesions and location of lesions to help guide the surgeon or radiologist to perform a biopsy.
