Breast Ultrasound

Breast ultrasound is one of the most commonly used methods in the examination of the breast organ. Breast cancer in women with breast cancer in the diagnosis of breast cancer results in very good results. Therefore, breast ultrasound is of great importance in the early diagnosis and diagnosis of breast cancer.

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

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

How Is Breast Ultrasound Done?

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

A female patient who has breast ultrasound will lie on her back. Then the ultrasound gel is applied to the breast tissue. This gel helps the ultrasound device to take the picture clearly. After the gel is applied, the ultrasound probe is moved slowly over the breast tissue. The patient does not experience any pain during the procedure. The radiologist who tells the patient how to lie in a position during the procedure, tells the doctor.

The process takes approximately 20 to 30 minutes.

Who is the breast ultrasound?

Breast ultrasound is especially preferred for cancer screening in female patients under 35 years of age. It is not preferred for mammography screening at early ages. Screening of young women by breast ultrasound is necessary to avoid the risk of radiation. Breast ultrasound is also used to examine the patients who have had breast surgery after the operation and to determine the postoperative conditions of the patients with silicone implantation.
