Breast ultrasound examination
The aim of the examination is to detect possible lesions in the breast tissue. Ultrasonic examination with high frequency sound waves provides a detailed picture of the internal tissue of the breasts.
During the procedure, the patient will be lying on the examination bed. The doctor will apply a translucent, colorless and odorless gel to the test area, which is then scanned through with the ultrasound device. From the reflective sound waves, a real-time black-and-white image is created on the device’s screen, which then will be explained by the expert radiologist. Ultrasound does not answer whether the lump is cancer and if it is malignant or benign. To determine that, biopsy sampling and subsequent laboratory testing of the sample is needed.

The ultrasound examination does not require any special preparation. It is painless and harmless and can be repeated as frequently as needed.
