Breast Ultrasound

HonorHealth's Breast Health and Research Center offers everything you need for complete and thorough testing.

Breast ultrasound uses sound waves to help evaluate areas of concern found in a mammogram.Ultrasound helps us pinpoint where to perform needle biopsies as well.

While a mammogram might show a lump on a monitor, ultrasound will help our breast radiology specialists determine whether the lump is a solid mass or a fluid-filled, benign cyst.

Other Ultrasound Uses

Ultrasound is also helpful for finding some abnormalities not detected on mammography — especially in dense, fibrocystic breasts. These types of findings are comparatively few in number.

Please note that a doctor's order is necessary for a breast ultrasound. For more information, call 623-780-HOPE (4673).
