Abstract [en]

Introduction: Mammography screening is the method used to detect breast cancer at an early stage. This enables an earlier treatment and reduces mortality in women. Despite these facts some women decline to participate because they experience mammography and the compression unpleasant and painful. Purpose: The aim of this study was to describe the radiographer´s role during a mammography examination in terms of compression, image quality and patient satisfaction and confidentiality. Method: The study was performed as an integrative literature review based on questions formulated according to our objectives. Fourteen scientific articles were reviewed, drawn into themes, evaluated and merged into a result. Results: The results showed that it is possible to reduce women's discomfort and pain during mammography. The radiographer could, by providing adequate information about the examination and by creating a good communication, make the woman feel more respected and experience the examination less unpleasant and painful. Conclusion: The radiographer´s role is a major factor to get women to participate in mammography screening. If the patient is given information and respect by the radiographer it is more likely that she will better comply with mammography screening.
