Is It Recommended to Get an Ultrasound of the Breast

Mammography is an excellent test, and usually the best test for determining the nature of a breast complaint. However, mammography is performed with radiation, and has some cost and discomfort and certainly is not a test women can receive frequently during the year. Women, alternatively, can receive an ultrasound of breast tissue that can reveal the nature of a lump if one is felt on examination. Breast Ultrasound is also extremely useful to direct a fluid aspiration test and to follow up when breast cysts have persisted. Many organizations have guidelines covering when and how to use ultrasound, including, ACOG, AIUM, and ACR.
