MR safety: Assuming you have not had interim metal in your eye from injury or surgery somewhere with some metal put in MR is safe. A lot of implanted stuff is MR safe these days anyway. MR contrast agents are generally safe too esp. if you have normal kidneys. If your Dr. wants you to have another MR, for a benign cyst, you should likely have it. Cysts can grow.Radiologist is responsible for your safety, too ...Read more
An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more

Two and a half months ago i had an embolization procedure for my vericocele, and i haven't seen any results. Was the operation unsuccessful?
Possibly: Sometimes there are collateral veins below the level of embolization that enlarge after the embolization and allow for continued reflux into the testicular veins. A repeat doppler ultrasound should be able to tell if the varicocele is still present. If so, the will be consideration for further treatment, re-embo or surgery. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Why would a dr. Ask for a second CT scan? Had one done a week ago.. Told me it was not urgent but to go back in 3 months for another CT scan
Frequently, : Frequently, an abnormality is found which is most likely inconsequential, however rarely may be a problem. An example would be a mass on the adrenal gland. These are commonly seen and are usually benign; meaning they have no consequence. However, rarely they may be cancer. Sometimes, we'll ask for a repeat exam with a different technique for further evaluation to prove they're benign. Other times we would like to see if there has been an interval change; such as with a lung nodule. Lung nodules are frequently seen and are often benign, but we can't know for sure unless we can say it has been stable for a given period of time. There are many other reasons for a repeat exam. I suggest you discuss this with your physician. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Ovarian cyst: Ovarian cysts can change in size during a woman's cycle. How do you know it changes size "every few days"? Its unlikely you could tell that short of an ultrasound. Or, are you having pain intermittently and interpreting that as a size change? ...Read more

I recently had a mammogram done. I got a call back to come in for a ultrasound.
Assyterim density. Recently 9 months out bariatric. 70 pounds lost?
Weight loss: can cause mammographic changes due to fat loss and resultant relative increase in breast density. What did the ultrasound show? If it cannot be determined whether the mammographic changes are due to weight loss, additional imaging with MRI or needle biopsy may be necessary to completely evaluate the asymmetry. Mammographic developing asymmetries have about a 10% chance of malignancy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Help!! did mammogram and was normal. no ultrasound done. still have pain. feel something hard. what to do?
Clinical breast exam: Have you had your doctor do a clinical breast examination(CBE)? A mammogram should always be accompanied by a breast examination done by a health care professional as the mammogram will miss 10 % of breast lumps. if you and your doctor feel a lump, it must be checked further with an ultrasound and a biopsy of the lump is also a must if the lump is confirmed by your doctor ...Read more
I had both the same day, and the mammogram come back normal, but the ultrasound came back abnormal? Which one is more accurate?
Different: Mammogram and ultrasound look at different qualities. Mammogram is good at seeing tissue that is more dense than surrounding tissue and for calcifications. Ultrasound is good at seeing the whether those tissues are solid or fluid-filled or both. The two together, in addition to the physician's exam, help to create a more complete picture. Trust in your doctor to interpret these findings for you. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Very common: Ultrasound is often used to evaluate densities seen on a mammogram. Most often a round density on a mammogram is a benign cyst or benign breast tumor called a fibroadenoma. If the ultrasound suggests an alternative diagnosis it can be used to guide biopsy. Basically it is a second test used to provide additional information. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It depends: It depends on the workflow of the facility. Some may have immediate interpretations, with the availability of ultrasound before the patient leaves. Others may not be able to accomodate the ultrasound right away, and might have to schedule it for another day.In any case, it is fairly standard to get an ultrasound to evaluate a mass, it is variable as to whether the US can be done immediately. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ultrasound vs mammograms? What are the differences between an ultrasound and mammogram? I had an ultrasound done and the tech thought he found a lump, but he said he needed to investigate it more, so he wanted to schedule another ultrasound. Shouldn't i
X-ray vs sound waves: If you have a lump that can be felt, it's likely the radiologist will want an ultrasound as well as mammogram. Mammogram uses x-rays to see calcifications that might indicate a breast cancer, while ultrasound uses sound waves to see different characteristics of breast tissue such as blood flow, size and shape of a lump and whether it's solid or cystic. Ultrasound is also used to guide biopsy. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Had a Mammogram come back Br-aid 1 negative but have Heterogenous breast dense why is my dr sending me for a ultrasound im worried?
Two tests better tha: Dense breasts are not adequately examined with Mammography alone, so it is common to add an Ultrasound exam to it so that the 2 tests can better visualize your breast and not miss any small tumor or mass. No reason to worry...it is a commonly done procedure and done for a good reason. This will give you more peace of mind, than an incomplete examination( if you did one test only) ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What is the difference between screening mammogram and diagnostic mammogram? Why does the diagnostic one have to be done with breast ultrasound?
Purpose: The purpose of a screening mammogram is to identify breast cancer in women who have no signs of disease, while the purpose of a diagnostic mammogram is to obtain more detail on a known abnormality identified on prior physical exam or imaging study. A diagnostic mammogram need not always be done with an ultrasound. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Why is a breast MRI ordered after having 2 breast ultrasounds and multiple mammogram images done, without a cancer diagnosis?
Lump in L breast 12:00, mammogram and ultrasound done. Radiologist palpitated the area and examined on ultrasound and said she felt sure it was a fat lobule and saw nothing suspicious on either scan. Still anxious though - how can she be sure?
Biopsy: The only way to be 100% sure would be to do a biopsy. However, imaging tests are very accurate, and if you had both a mammogram and an ultrasound that showed nothing suspicious and it appeared to be fat, a biopsy is usually deemed to be unnecessary, as the likelihood that it is something concerning is extremely low. ...Read more

You need to be: re-evaluated by your physician. You should check the report of the mammogram, don't assume anything. Incidentally, federal MQSA regulations require that a patient be notified, in writing, of mammo results within 30 days. If you didn't get a letter, your facility may not be in compliance with the law. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My mom had breast cancer, i'm 39 and i just had a mammogram and breast ultrasound and got called back to my doctor, should I be worried?
No just follow-up: You had a screening mammogram. This test is designed to determine if your mammogram is normal or abnormal. An abnormal mammogram does not mean you have breast cancer. You can have a fibroadenoma, a breast cyst or other benign breast condition which are much more common than breast cancer. The next step if the screening mammogram is abnormal is to perform a diagnostic mammogram of the area. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

A mammogram is the "gold standard" screening test for breast cancer. It's well established that yearly 'grams will DX cancers well before they are palpable, leading to earlier diagnoses and saved lives. All experts agree to begin yearly mammograms by age 50; many (including myself) believe the pro's outweigh the con's to begin at 40. Regrettably, less than half of all women ...Read more
