A breast ultrasound is often performed following a mammogram. Breast ultrasound is an imaging modality that uses high-frequency sound waves to take internal pictures of breast tissue. The test provides detailed information on abnormalities within the breast. The detailed images of breast tissue can reveal if a lump is a fluid-filled cyst or a solid mass that needs additional testing.

When is a Breast Ultrasound Needed?

Breast ultrasounds are usually not used on their own to screen for breast cancer. They are often recommended as a follow-up test on suspicious areas seen during mammograms.

A doctor may recommend a breast ultrasound for the following reasons:

  • To check if a breast lump is a fluid-filled breast cyst (usually not cancerous) or a solid mass (this may require further testing)
  • To investigate a focal area in the breast that appeared abnormal on a mammogram
  • To examine a pregnant woman’s breasts in conjunction with a physical exam
  • For the purpose of guiding a needle into a mass to collect sample tissue for biopsy

Preparation for a Breast Ultrasound

Prior to the procedure, the patient should not apply any lotion or powder to the skin or wear deodorant on the day of her ultrasound as these substances are known to interfere with getting clear images from the test.

Immediately before the procedure starts, the patient undresses from the waist up and changes into a gown that opens in the front.

During the procedure, the patient will lie on a table, usually in an angled position to optimize positioning for the imager. The radiologist applies clear, water-based gel to a wand, called a transducer, which is moved over the skin on and around the patient’s breast.

The radiologist will be able to see the ultrasound images on a screen during the test whereby representative images are saved to share with the doctor.

What Happens After a Breast Ultrasound?

After the procedure is complete, the radiologist interprets the images and provides a report. If any additional tests are needed or follow-up is recommended, that information is will be shared with you on the day of the exam.

Risk Factors of a Breast Ultrasound

Since breast ultrasound uses sound waves, and not radiation to produce images, there are no known risks of the ultrasound modality.

FAQ's

Breast ultrasound is a non-invasive medical imaging test that uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of the breast tissue.

Breast ultrasound is often done to further evaluate a lump or abnormality detected during a mammogram or physical exam. It may also be used to evaluate breast pain or nipple discharge.

Breast ultrasound is typically performed with the patient lying on their back. A gel is applied to the breast, and a handheld device called a transducer is moved over the breast tissue to produce the images.

Breast ultrasound cannot definitively diagnose breast cancer, but it can be used to evaluate suspicious findings and help guide further testing or biopsies.
