Breast Ultra Sound

Breast Ultrasound – Sonogram

Using sound waves, black-and-white images are created as a wand move back and forth over your breast.

Doctors may order this with a mammogram, especially if a woman has dense breast tissue. Ultrasound helps the radiologist differentiate a breast tumor from a benign cyst.

This test may be performed along with your mammogram or the doctor may ask you to return for this test if there is a question about your 2D mammogram. This is frequently paid for by insurance, especially if the doctor suspects there may be a mass in your breast.
