In breast ultrasound, sound waves are used to create an image of the tissues within the breast. A breast ultrasound will help determine whether a lump in the breast is filled with fluid (a cyst) or is solid.
Breast ultrasound is not a replacement for a mammography or breast MRI, but is intended to provide additional information when there are abnormal findings in a mammogram and/or MRI.
A breast MRI is utilized to contribute to the early detection of breast cancer and can also detect other breast abnormalities. A breast MRI will generate detailed pictures of the breast by capturing and combining multiple images of the breast.
Before your appointment
If you are coming in for a breast MRI exam, please know that you will be asked to lay face down on the table.
We also offer additional breast procedures, including:
- Breast biopsies, which can be guided through the use of MRI, ultrasound or X-ray
- Ductography (or galactography), which utilizes mammography to visualize the inside of the breast’s milk ducts
- Cyst aspirations, which use a fine needle to extract fluid from the area in question
- Needle localization, in which a guide wire is placed in the area of the breast abnormality to help a surgeon locate a lesion for surgical biopsy
