Metaphors for mammograms

At first I thought maybe mammograms were a bit like Scylla and Charybdis. But then I remembered the story of the Argonauts and the Symplegades (or crashing rocks, as I think of them). Visual here. Another picture of the Symplegades with Ephemus here. Not a bad experience; better than some medical tests to be honest. In my opinion, it’s preferable to allowing obvious cancer signs go unnoticed.  It’s also preferable to just wondering if one’s OK. YMMV. (Also preferable to a stick in your eye… etc etc. And I realize, not a very Christmas-themed post.)
