Diagnostic Recommendations

  • Mammography – This is used when a patient age 30 or older is experiencing concerning symptoms or an abnormality has been discovered on a screening mammogram.
  • Ultrasound –  Ultrasound is the first line of evaluation in a symptomatic patient who is younger than age 30.
  • MRI— This is typically performed after a biopsy has been identified positive for breast cancer and the doctor needs more information about the extent of the disease.
