Ultrasound

Diagnostic Breast Ultrasound (hand held breast ultrasound)

A diagnostic ultrasound is a study performed when clinical finds are present—such as a lump, pain, or nipple discharge.   This test is done in conjunction with a diagnostic mammogram. The ultrasound can differentiate cysts from solid masses. It is also a helpful tool for women who may have breast complaints but are too young for a mammogram.

Automated Breast Ultrasound (ABUS)

The ABUS system was designed specifically as a screening tool for women diagnosed with dense breast tissue.   This adjunct study is similar to the 3D mammogram, but uses ultrasound to take multiple scans over sections of the breast. These fine “slices” allow the radiologist to see thru tissue often too dense to make accurate diagnoses.

Women with dense breasts are significantly better served when imaged with a combination of screening mammography and supplemental 3D automated breast ultrasound (ABUS) than when they’re imaged with screening mammography alone.
