Sonogram (Definition)

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

No side wffects: The MRI is a safe test that uses a magnet instead of X-rays. Because of this there is no radiation exposure. It is one of the best tests for deteriorated or herniated disk problems. Tests to get an answer are not always necessary. The MRI is usually done only if surgery is being considered, if your symptoms don't fit a specific pattern, or if the treatment isn't working. ...Read more

Is tamoxifen needed for dcis that was treated with lumpectomy&radiation? Been on it for 2yrs&have bad side effects. Sonogram showed endometr thickenin

It's risk vs benefit: Tamoxifen drops your risk of developing a new breast cancer in either breast by 1/2. But the absolute benefit is small. You are only 22, so your lifetime risk of having a new breast cancer is higher than if you were 50. Ask your doctor for the numbers (your risk of developing a new breast cancer with or without tamoxifen), and ask about raloxifene, a similar drug. Then make your decision. ...Read more

How long can a transvaginal ultrasound wand be in a vagina before it causes cavitation or heating?

How long can a transvaginal ultrasound wand be in a vagina before it causes cavitation or heating?

See answer: As a diagnostic procedure, ultrasound is a safe and painless procedure that uses sound waves to "see" inside your body and create detailed images. The wand, aka "transducer", used for diagnostic purposes does not emit heat or cause cavitation. When used as a therapeutic or treatment procedure, such as with liposuction, more powerful transducers are used which do emit heat and can cause cavitation. ...Read more
