In brief: Usually

a diagnostic mammo/US is interpreted on the same day.
The logistics of every facility are a little different, not sure why it would take 3-5 days for results. If you don't want to wait, you can try calling and asking about the results.

In brief: That is

How long it takes the breast center you used to have the radiologist review the exam, generate a report, transmit the report to your doctor, and notify you of the results.
