Ultrasound breast

RM280

A breast ultrasound is an imaging technique commonly used to screen for tumors and other breast abnormalities. The ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to produce detailed images of the inside of the breasts. Unlike X-rays and CT scans, ultrasounds don’t use radiation and are considered safe for pregnant women and breast-feeding mothers.

Why you need to purchase this product:

A breast ultrasound is most often done to find out if a problem found by a mammogram or physical exam of the breast may be a cyst filled with fluid or a solid tumour.

Why a breast ultrasound may be performed include:

  • to assess unusual nipple discharge
  • have particularly dense breast tissue. A mammogram may not be able to see through the tissue.
  • are pregnant. Mammography uses radiation, but ultrasound does not. This makes it safer for the fetus.
  • are younger than age 25
  • to evaluate cases of mastitis or inflammation of the mammary tissues
  • to evaluate breast implants
  • to assess symptoms, such as breast pain, redness, and swelling
  • to assess skin changes, such as discolouration
  • to help monitor existing benign breast lumps
  • to help read the results of other imaging tests, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or mammogram
