A ductogram, also known as a galactogram or mammary ductography, is a diagnostic imaging procedure used to evaluate the health of the milk ducts within the breast. This procedure is primarily employed to detect and investigate issues within the milk ducts, such as blockages, abnormalities, or other concerns that might not be clearly visible through other imaging techniques.

How is a Ductogram performed?
It involves the insertion of a very fine plastic cannula into the opening of a specific milk duct on the nipple. A contrast dye is then injected through this tube, allowing the radiologist to capture detailed X-ray images or mammograms.
What is seen on a Ductogram?
Ductograms can provide valuable insights into the structure and function of the breast ducts, assisting the radiologist in making informed decisions about treatment or further evaluation, especially when addressing nipple discharge or other duct-related symptoms.
Is a Ductogram painful?
The procedure can cause some discomfort, similar to a mammogram or breast biopsy. Local anesthesia may be used to minimize discomfort during the insertion of the tube.
How long does a Ductogram take?
The procedure itself usually takes around 30 to 60 minutes, but this can vary depending on the complexity of the ductal anatomy.
Are there any risks associated with a Ductogram? 
Ductograms are generally safe procedures. However, there is a slight risk of infection, bleeding, or allergic reaction to the contrast dye.
What can I expect after a Ductogram?
After the procedure, you may experience some mild discomfort or nipple tenderness. You might be advised to avoid strenuous activities for a short period and to watch for any signs of infection.
When will I receive the results of the Ductogram?
The radiologist will analyze the images and provide a report to your healthcare provider. You will likely discuss the results and any necessary next steps during a follow-up appointment.
What if an abnormality is found in the Ductogram?
If an abnormality is detected, then further imaging, additional tests, or surgical consultation may be warranted for potential treatment.
Can anyone undergo a Ductogram?
Ductograms are typically performed on individuals who are experiencing specific symptoms, such as persistent nipple discharge.
