Breast Ultrasound

Ultrasound imaging of the breast uses sound waves to produce images of the internal structures of the breast. It is used to evaluate palpable abnormalities or further evaluate findings on a physical exam, mammogram or breast MRI. Ultrasound can also be used as a screening examination in patients with dense breasts. Ultrasound is safe, noninvasive and does not use ionizing radiation.

What to expect

  • You will be provided with your own locked dressing room. You will be asked to undress above the waist and will be provided a gown to wear.
  • The technician will image the breast using an ultrasound probe. Gel will be placed between the probe and breast to facilitate the transmission of sound waves into and out of the body. The study will take between 10 and 30 minutes.
