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
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 2 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 2 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
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
