Breast Ultrasound

Breast ultrasound is a preferred cancer screening method because it does not involve radiation and is painless.

Breast ultrasound is preferred over mammography in women younger than 35 years of age who do not have a palpable mass.

How is Breast Ultrasound Performed?

We would like to answer the question of how to do breast ultrasound in the minds of female patients who have not had breast ultrasound before.

The female patient who will have a breast ultrasound lies on her back. Then ultrasound gel is applied to the breast tissue. This gel helps the ultrasound device to take the image clearly. After the gel is applied, the ultrasound probe is slowly moved over the breast tissue.

The patient does not feel any pain during the procedure. The Radiology Specialist Doctor who performs the procedure tells the patient what position to lie in during the procedure. The procedure takes approximately 20 to 30 minutes.

Who Can Have Breast Ultrasound?

Breast ultrasound is especially preferred for cancer screening in female patients under the age of 35. Mammography is not preferred for screening purposes at an early age. Screening young women with breast ultrasound is necessary to avoid the risk of radiation. In addition, breast ultrasound is also used to examine patients who have undergone breast surgery after surgery and to determine the post-procedure status of patients with silicone implants.

Breast Ultrasound during Pregnancy

Pregnant women should stay away from radiation during pregnancy. Therefore, mammography is not preferred for pregnant women. Therefore, breast ultrasound during pregnancy is a safe test. There is no harm to the baby and the mother.

When Should Breast Ultrasound Be Performed?

  • Breast ultrasound to visualize palpable masses,
  • For detailed examination of suspicious images obtained during mammography,
  • To determine the type of lesion detected by mammography,
  • Prior to breast removal or partial procedures when cancer is detected,
  • Postoperative control of the cleaned area and chest wall,
  • For the examination of fibrocystic and dense breast tissues seen on mammography,
  • For proper monitoring of the lymph nodes,
  • It is performed to evaluate non palpable lesions in the breast.

During breast ultrasound, color Doppler ultrasound is used to determine the state of blood supply around the lesions detected in the breast. The blood supply status of the lesion plays an important role in the diagnosis of whether the lesion is malignant or benign. Of course, according to all these examinations, breast biopsy may be deemed necessary if deemed necessary.
