Breast Ultrasound

A breast ultrasound may be ordered if suspicious areas are detected during your mammogram. Sound waves create an image of your breast and the image appears on a video monitor.

What to Expect at Your Breast Ultrasound

This simple procedure generally takes 10 to 20 minutes and is similar to ultrasounds done on pregnant women to check the health of the baby. On the day of the exam we suggest wearing a two-piece outfit so you only need remove your top for the exam. A sonographer will apply a gel to the breast area and scan the area with a hand-held wand used to reflect sound waves onto a video monitor. The images will then be interpreted by a radiologist.

We are accredited by the American College of Radiology as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, including breast ultrasound, mammography and ultrasound-guided biopsy.
