Breast Ultrasounds at Montclair Radiology
A breast ultrasound is often the first line of additional testing when a mammogram comes back abnormal or when a woman finds a lump in her breast during self-screening. Ultrasounds allow your doctor to tell if the lump is fluid filled or not. Fluid-filled lumps are usually cysts and require no further treatment.
Breast ultrasound screen is quick, painless, and non-invasive. Your ultrasound technician will place a cool gel on your breasts, and then use an ultrasound wand to press against the breast tissue. There is no radiation during an ultrasound to more accurately understand what is going on with the breast structure.
