Diagnostic Breast Ultrasound
Breast ultrasound is typically used in combination with diagnostic mammography to evaluate specific areas of concern that are ‘palpable’ (can be felt), such as a breast lump, or anything identified on a mammogram that requires further study. Ultrasound technology works by using sound waves, providing real-time images of the breast for radiologists to view on a screen. Breast ultrasound does not replace the need for 3D mammography; instead, it’s helpful in providing more information for the detection and diagnosis of breast disease and can also confirm whether a needle biopsy may be needed.
