3 Things to know about having a Breast Ultrasound

Has your doctor mentioned that you should get a breast ultrasound? If so here are three things to know about breast ultrasounds and why they are important.

1. Ultrasounds is a painless test done usually to evaluate breast problems that are found during a mammogram. This test does require an order from your doctor.

2. Ultrasounds are used to compliment a mammogram and is a useful tool that helps the radiologist distinguish between a fluid-filled cyst or a solid mass.

3. During the exam you will be on your side and the technician will talk you through the whole process. You will never have to worry about feeling uncomfortable because our staff strives to make this experience as easy as possible, right down to warming the ultrasound gel!

"I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Petty and the BDC staff. Everyone is just so friendly, caring and understanding of the situation. I stopped in a couple of times after some tests, and everyone had smiles on their faces. It is a beautiful, well-organized environment."
