Breast Ultrasound

Breast Ultrasound offers a dynamic view of breast health, aiding in the assessment of lumps, cysts, and masses, as well as guiding biopsies and interventions. Its radiation-free nature and versatility make it a reassuring choice for patients of all ages, contributing to comprehensive breast care and enhancing women’s well-being.

  • Patients in their 20s and 30s.

It is highly recommended to undergo both ultrasound and mammography for greater accuracy and detection of breast cancer in women.

What are the Benefits of Breast Ultrasound?

  • Breast Ultrasound is a non-invasive imaging technique that uses sound waves to create images of breast tissue. It does not involve radiation exposure, making it a safe option for repeated examinations, especially for younger individuals.
  • Detect subtle changes in breast tissue that might not be visible on mammograms, particularly in dense breast tissue. It is highly effective in identifying cysts, solid masses, and other abnormalities.
  • Breast Ultrasound complements other imaging techniques like mammography, especially for women with dense breast tissue or those at higher risk for breast cancer. It provides additional information that can help healthcare professionals make well-informed decisions about further tests or treatments.
  • Excels at detecting subtle changes in breast tissue, providing an additional layer of sensitivity to identify abnormalities at an early stage, even in dense breast tissue where mammography might be less effective.
  • Utilizes sound waves to create images, eliminating radiation exposure and making it a safe option for frequent screenings and follow-ups.
  • Breast Ultrasound is suitable for women of all ages, including young adults and pregnant or breastfeeding women, making it an adaptable and versatile imaging option.
  • The procedure is non-invasive, painless, and does not involve compression or radiation exposure, contributing to a more comfortable and reassuring experience for patients.


Frequently Asked Questions about Breast Ultrasound

No, Breast Ultrasound is generally painless. The procedure involves placing a small handheld device (transducer) on the breast, which emits sound waves. Patients might experience mild pressure during the scan with minimal discomfort.

Mammography uses X-rays to create images of the breast’s internal structures, while Breast Ultrasound uses sound waves to assess what kind of masses (fluid-filled or solid) if any.

Breast Ultrasound can benefit a wide range of individuals, especially those with dense breast tissue, younger women, pregnant or breastfeeding women, and individuals with certain medical conditions. It is also employed to assess breast lumps or changes found during clinical examinations or mammograms.

Mammography remains the gold standard for screening breast cancer when no obvious findings are noted.

Breast Ultrasound is not a replacement for mammography but serves as a valuable complementary tool to assess for findings that may be hidden by dense breast tissues on mammography.

While Breast Ultrasound is excellent for visualizing certain breast conditions, it might not detect all abnormalities. It is most effective in detecting cysts, solid masses, and changes in dense breast tissue. Your healthcare provider will determine the most appropriate imaging approach based on your specific case.
