A 28-year-old female asked:

Should follow up breast ultrasounds after benign biopsy be done at the same facility for consistency purposes?

Yes : It is usually helpful to have your mammograms and ultrasounds done at the same facility. It is easier for radiologist to compare results. Take care!

Follow up: All things being equal, yes. However, if you wish to go to a new facility, it is not a big deal, just bring your old images, or have them sent, to the new place.
