mammogram


Explanation:
If the term refers to the actual radiographic picture, this would be more appropriate. "Mammografia" is often used erroneously to indicate the picture and not the radiographic study.
Just FYI.

Explanation:
Below are the definitions, from the Webster's, of both "mammography" and "mammogram". The former is the process, and the latter is the image (= the product of mammography).

mammography, n.
x-ray photography of a breast, esp. for detection of tumors.

mammogram, n.
an x-ray photograph obtained by mammography.

Hope that this helps.

Best regards.
