Breast Ultrasound General Questions

What is a breast ultrasound?

Ultrasound imaging of the breast uses sound waves to examine and produce pictures of the breast’s internal structures.

Why are patients referred for a breast ultrasound?

Breast ultrasounds are used to help determine the nature of a breast abnormality found in physical examinations. Breast ultrasounds are often used with a mammogram to identify anomalies that aren’t visible or clear on the mammogram. Click here to read patient information on breast ultrasounds.

Ultrasound-guided breast biopsies

Guided breast biopsies are used if a breast ultrasound reveals an area that warrants further examination.
