Breast Ultrasound

Call 978-937-6023 to schedule your mammogram

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.

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. 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.
