Diagnostic Ultrasound



Breast Ultrasound is used as part of a diagnostic study to further evaluate an area of abnormality picked up on mammography or to evaluate a symptom such as a lump or breast pain. Many causes of breast pain are found by ultrasound such as cysts, fibroadenomas, and abscess which may be missed on mammography alone. Rarely, breast cancers can also cause breast pain depending on the location of the cancer. In our practice, a physician with expertise in breast ultrasound performs ultrasound of the entire breast, not just the area of concern.
