What is a
breast ultrasound?

  • Breast ultrasounds use sound waves to evaluate the breast and surrounding tissues. It can be used to evaluate for abnormal areas either felt clinically by the patient or physician or seen on prior imaging exams. Additionally, breast ultrasounds can also be used as an adjunctive screening modality to screening mammograms.
  • Ultrasounds do not utilize ionizing radiation and are safe for pregnant women
