Clear insight into Breast Health. Gain a deeper understanding of your breast health with a breast ultrasound. A breast ultrasound helps gather more detailed and accurate information for a faster and more precise breast diagnosis.
A breast ultrasound is a non-invasive procedure that supports further investigation when abnormalities, such as lumps or changes in breast tissue, need to be examined. Through the use of high-frequency sound waves, the ultrasound machine creates images of the breast tissue that our radiologists can analyse. These detailed images help us gain a better understanding of the identified findings from a mammogram. For example, it helps differentiate between a fluid-filled cyst and a solid lump.
Remember, being referred for an ultrasound does not mean you have breast cancer. It simply indicates that further tests are necessary to fully understand the nature and cause of the abnormality.
These scans are excellent when used in combination with other breast screening methods like mammography or MRI. They provide a more detailed investigation for breast-related concerns. The procedure is non-invasive, painless, and typically completed in less than 30 minutes. It is particularly useful for women with dense breast tissue.
Some key benefits of breast ultrasounds include:
If you’re looking for additional information about breast abnormalities detected during a mammogram, a breast ultrasound can provide valuable insights.
A breast ultrasound is a medical imaging test that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of breast tissue. It is a non-invasive procedure that can help identify lumps and other abnormalities in the breast.
A mammogram and a breast ultrasound are two different imaging techniques. A mammogram uses X-rays, while a breast ultrasound relies on high-frequency sound waves. Mammograms are generally more effective for breast screening in non-symptomatic patients, while ultrasounds are useful in assisting with symptomatic cases. Both techniques have their own purposes and are best utilised in different circumstances.
Unlike many other imaging procedures, breast ultrasounds are virtually risk-free as they are non-invasive and involve no exposure to radiation.
