Breast ultrasound is used as an adjunct to mammography in the same fashion that MRI complements mammography. A breast ultrasound is a safe, non-invasive exam that uses sound waves to see the inside of the breast and does not have any radiation.
Breast ultrasound is often performed in conjunction with diagnostic mammography and may be recommended for patients with breast implants since ultrasound can distinguish between solid and fluid-filled lumps (cysts). Cysts are very common and completely benign; about half of all women have some cysts in their breasts at some point.
Common ultrasound Studies also Include: Abdomen, Thyroid, Liver, Kidney, Pelvis, Scrotum, Venous Duplex, Arterial studies
