Breast health is a critical aspect of overall well-being for women of all ages. Regular check-ups and screenings are essential for early detection and prevention of breast-related concerns. At Phoenix Ultrasound, serving Surrey/Banstead and Central London, we offer comprehensive breast health check-ups, including the latest technology in breast shearwave elastography. In this article, we’ll explore the importance of breast health check-ups and the benefits of shearwave elastography in detecting breast abnormalities.

The Importance of Breast Health Check-Ups:

Regular breast health check-ups are vital for detecting any abnormalities or changes in breast tissue early on, when treatment is most effective. A comprehensive breast health check-up involves a combination of clinical breast examinations, imaging studies, and advanced screening techniques.

At Phoenix Ultrasound, our breast health check-up includes:

  1. Clinical breast examination: A thorough examination performed by a healthcare professional to detect any lumps, changes in breast size or shape, or other abnormalities.
  2. Breast ultrasound: Utilizing high-frequency sound waves to create detailed images of breast tissue, assisting in the detection of cysts, tumors, or other abnormalities.
  3. Mammography: X-ray imaging of the breast tissue to identify any signs of breast cancer or other abnormalities.
  4. Shearwave elastography: An advanced ultrasound technique that measures the stiffness of breast tissue, aiding in the detection and characterization of breast lesions.

The Role of Shearwave Elastography in Breast Health:

Shearwave elastography is a revolutionary technology that provides additional information about the stiffness or elasticity of breast tissue. This technique can help differentiate between benign and malignant breast lesions, enhancing diagnostic accuracy and reducing the need for unnecessary biopsies.

During a shearwave elastography examination, a specialized ultrasound probe emits low-frequency vibrations into the breast tissue, measuring the speed at which these vibrations propagate. Areas of increased stiffness may indicate the presence of a malignant lesion, while softer areas are more likely to be benign.

Benefits of Shearwave Elastography:

  • Non-invasive: Shearwave elastography is a painless and non-invasive procedure, making it suitable for patients of all ages.
  • Improved accuracy: By providing additional information about breast tissue stiffness, shearwave elastography can enhance diagnostic accuracy and reduce the need for invasive procedures.
  • Early detection: Early detection of breast abnormalities can lead to timely intervention and improved treatment outcomes.
