Along with medical ultrasound
awareness month, October celebrates breast cancer awareness month to bring to
light the importance of women’s health, research, and advancements in the field
to cure and detect breast cancer.
Did you know that along with a mammogram, breast
ultrasound is used to produce pictures of the internal structures of the
breast? Ultrasound is primarily used to help diagnose breast lumps or other
abnormalities that may have been found during a physical exam, mammogram or
breast MRI. Ultrasound is a safe and painless alternative for those who cannot
be exposed to radiation.
