Breast Ultrasound

Ultrasound, also known as sonography, can help further evaluate breast problems that are detected during a physical exam or mammogram. Although having a breast ultrasound is not routine it is often used with mammography in women with dense breast tissue.

Ultrasound is a simple, painless, and safe diagnostic procedure which works by bouncing high-frequency sound waves off of parts of the body and capturing the returning “echoes” as images. There is no radiation associated with an ultrasound exam.
