Breast Ultrasound

SMIL offers a breast ultrasound exam to determine the nature of a breast abnormality. The primary use of a breast ultrasound exam today is to help diagnose breast abnormalities detected during a physical exam such as breast lumps, breast pain or nipple discharge. A breast ultrasound exam also characterizes potential abnormalities seen on other breast scans.

Breast ultrasounds help supplement mammography by detecting breast cancers that may not be visible with mammography due to dense tissue in the breasts and other factors. A breast ultrasound exam can be offered as a screening tool for women who are at high risk for breast cancer and for women who are pregnant and cannot be exposed to radiation used in other breast scans.

Learn how to prepare for a breast ultrasound exam in the preparations for a breast ultrasound exam section.

Visited for Doppler's. Both techs were very nice. They got me in quickly and scheduled the scans back to back so I only had to make one trip. Appointment went smoothly and I was in and out with minimal waiting.

The staff person who performed the mammogram was great - very caring and guided me through the process. I can't recall her name to give her credit unfortunately. My only complaint is regarding mask wearing of intake/reception staff. Several of them were either maskless or with the mask below their nose. I emphasize that it can be uncomfortable to wear a mask all day but when you are interacting with potentially immunocompromised individuals, I feel that there needs to be a focus on doing so for the benefit and comfort of the patients.
