If an area of concern is identified on your mammogram or if you feel a lump that cannot be localized on your mammogram, you may be referred for an ultrasound of the area in question. Gel is applied to the area to be scanned and a transducer is passed gently over the skin. Sound waves are reflected off the internal structure of your breast to reconstruct an image on a computer. This image will assist the Radiologist in identifying abnormalities.
There is no preparation for this exam.
