DIAGNOSTIC BREAST ULTRASOUND

For higher resolution, fully focused imaging our ultrasound technology can help determine if there is a breast abnormality and what type it may be. A breast ultrasound is ordered to evaluate signs and symptoms of breast cancer in order to review the findings seen on a mammogram or MRI exam.
