What to Expect When Preparing for a Breast Ultrasound Scan

A breast ultrasound is a non-invasive diagnostic procedure that produces images of the breast tissue using high-frequency sound waves. It can assist in determining whether a lump is a solid mass or a fluid-filled cyst and is frequently used to assess lumps or other abnormalities in the breast. What to anticipate during your breast ultrasound scan at our clinic is listed below.

On the day of the test, refrain from applying lotions, oils, or powder to your breasts and dress comfortably in loose-fitting clothing. In addition to being provided a robe to wear during the scan, you could be requested to remove your top and bra.

The actual scan: In order to acquire pictures of your breast tissue during the scan, the sonographer will apply a small amount of gel to your breast. This portable instrument is called a transducer. To produce the images, the transducer sends out sound waves and collects their echoes.

What you’ll see: The sonographer will inspect your breast tissue as the images are displayed on a computer screen. They will take measurements if necessary and look for tumours, cysts, or other anomalies.
