Our office will contact you 24 hours before your appointment to confirm your scheduled arrival time. We will also ask a few questions about your medical history and breast health.
There is no prep for this particular type of ultrasound, although please wear a blouse or top that will be easy to remove for the exam.
You will also need to notify our technologist if you have breast implants.
You may be asked to remove clothing and jewelry that may interfere with capturing quality images.
A technologist will explain the procedure and position you to ensure the highest quality images are obtained from your exam.
The breast ultrasound will take approximately 30 minutes.
Once the exam is complete, a radiologist will review the study and dictate a report. This report will be sent to the doctor who ordered your study.
Results are available within 24 - 48 hours.
We recommend that you call and schedule a follow-up appointment with your healthcare provider to discuss the results.
