Breast Cancer test: Radiology specialist will review your ultrasound and give us the ideal report. If there is questionable abnormality then MRI scan will need to be done to evaluate the breast abnormality. If ultrasound or MRI scan fined abnormal results then a biopsy of the abnormal part of the breast from radiologist or surgical oncologist will have to be done to find out if there is a true breast cancer.

It is a complementry: Ultrasound is useful test commonly done after a mammogram. It can make a distinction between solid(likely to be cancer) and cystic (usually benign)strutures. The accuracy of ultrasound is operator dependent...So a good/experienced radiologist can make good use of this test for accurate dignosis.
