Screening Breast Ultrasound

Screening Breast Ultrasound

During screening breast ultrasound, a radiologist performs ultrasound imaging of the entire breast to assess for abnormalities. This type of breast ultrasound is performed only after a screening mammogram is completed and found to be normal; it cannot be a standalone screening study. Screening breast ultrasound can be especially helpful in patients with very dense breast tissue as it can find cancers that are obscured on a mammogram.

A physician's order is required for screening breast ultrasound. Managed care patients also require a referral for certain studies.
