Breast ultrasound is a non-invasive procedure often used in addition to or as a follow-up to mammography. The ultrasound may help determine if a particular area found on a mammogram is solid or fluid filled. Areas determined to be benign may be followed for a short period, often three to six months, to monitor any changes over a specified period of time. Ultrasound, which can penetrate dense breast tissue, is particularly useful in evaluating women with fibrocystic breasts.
Ultrasound also helps guide biopsies, needle localizations and cyst aspirations. In these cases, the physician is able to view the needle being inserted in the breast, ensuring the proper area is being evaluated.
