Breast sonography or ultrasound is an imaging technology that uses sound waves to capture pictures of tissue inside the breast. There is no radiation used, and sonograms are considered safe.

Many times, a sonogram can provide a better picture of certain areas of the breast than a mammogram. It can also show if a breast lump is filled with fluid or is solid. It’s important to know that a sonogram is not a replacement for a mammogram, but rather an additional, supplemental test for most women.

Our breast sonography system is one of the most advanced systems on the market today, offering exquisite image quality for easier and more precise biopsies.

FAQs for breast sonograms

What do I bring? You’ll need your insurance information, the prescription for the procedure from your doctor (a phone order from your doctor is acceptable, too), and a referral if your insurance requires it.

Please bring all results from previous ultrasound procedures. If your previous images are from another facility, please bring CDs or films three days prior to your procedure.

How do I prepare? For some procedures, a nurse needs to interview you first. We’ll let you know if you need to do this when you schedule an appointment with us.

The day of your sonogram, do not apply powder, deodorant, or perfume on your upper body. You may eat and take all medications as directed by your doctor.
