How long does a breast ultrasound take to do?

Not too long: A breast ultrasound usually only takes between 20-40 minutes, but is somewhat operator dependent. An experienced ultrasonographer can be fairly rapid. However it is more important for them to be thorough and experienced rather than quick.
Dr. Dariush Vaziri

It varries: A focused breast ultrasound for a single palpable lump may only take a few short minutes. A more comprehensive evaluation for other abnormalities may take much longer from 5 to 30 minutes or so. The larger breast size also makes the study harder and longer to perform. So the duration of breast ultrasound depends on many factors.
