 Instant Results Summary*

*written ultrasound report within 24 hours.

 

 

What is the objective of this scan?

  • Focused assessment of the symptomatic area in the breast by using ultrasound (single breast).

 

Limitations of ultrasound: Ultrasound is one of the tools used to evaluate the breast and may not be able to provide a complete picture. Many cancers and calcifications seen on mammography are not visible on ultrasound. A biopsy may be suggested to determine if a suspicious abnormality detected on ultrasound is a cancer or not, however most suspicious findings from the scan are found to be benign lumps and not cancer.  

 

What is included with this scan?

A written report of the examination including any measurements within 24-48 hours after your appointment.

 

Self Referral Criteria:

We are only able to accept clients that meet our self referral criteria.

 

How do I prepare for this scan?

  • No specific preparation is required for this scan.

 

Ultrasound: Background

An ultrasound scan is a painless test that provides images of the inside of the body by using high frequency sound waves. These sound waves are at a frequency which cannot be heard by the human ear but when they bounce off different parts of the body, create echoes that are picked up by the probe and turned into a moving image.

Unlike other scans such as MRI and CT, ultrasound does not involve radiation and is in real time i.e. live imaging and is not static i.e. still pictures. This live information is interpreted and is used as the basis of the subsequent diagnostic report.

There are many kinds of ultrasound scans that can be performed as ultrasound has numerous applications in healthcare and are ultimately beneficial to us if used in the right context by a competent body or person.  However as with any test, ultrasound scans have limitations some of which are generic to all scans such as not being able to visualise bone clearly or scan specific and therefore may not be suitable in certain situations and like any test can not diagnose every problem.
