A order from your provider is requested for this exam. An ultrasound of a palpable mass that you or your provider feel should be performed. Your armpit may be evaluated as well.
Using ultrasound instead of a mammogram as a screening tool is not recommended by the American Cancer Society or the American College of Radiology.
A mammogram is a more sensitive screening tool than ultrasound.
Durango Ultrasound is happy to scan specific breast lumps.
No preparation is necessary. You will be asked to undress from the waist up. We will provide a robe for you to put on. You will be asked to uncover the affected breast.
If you have had a previous mammogram or ultrasound, we request those images be sent to our office prior to or brought with you the day of your scan.
