Will I at least be able to wear a bra when I have my heart ultrasound?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Usually not

As a cardiology fellow who has seen hundreds of these procedures, the breasts were covered with a towel as certain areas have to be accessible to get the right image.
For example to get a good apical 4 chanber, you will be asked to lean on your left side and probe will be under your left breast in ribs. A bra makes that difficult. Please ask your cardiologist any questions/cobcerns you have.
