Women younger than 50 years of age may access routine mammography with a referral from their doctor, through the diagnostic departments at hospitals within the regional health authorities.  Women in this age group should discuss with their health-care provider the risks and benefits of routine mammography and make an informed decision about having routine mammograms.
