Mammography

 

                                       Other Breast Imaging Modalities

 

  • Ultrasound

    • An imaging test that uses sound waves to create a picture of your breast. Ultrasound technology allows us to detect the slightest abnormalities in dense breasts and helps us determine whether a lump is a cyst (sac containing fluid) or a solid mass. This exam is usually used along with a mammogram.

     

  • Breast MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)

    • MRI uses a magnetic field and radio waves to create detailed images of the body. When performed using intravenous contrast, MRI can show the difference between enhancement of normal and abnormal breast tissue. This difference is not affected by the density of the breast tissue. MRI is therefore helpful in finding a subset of cancers that can be obscured by tissue on mammogram. Research studies have shown MRI to be very effective in finding breast cancers in dense breasts.

    • Recommended for women with a high risk of developing breast cancer

     

  • Biopsy

    • A test in which fluid or tissue is removed from your breast to help find out if there is cancer. A breast biopsy can be performed using Mammo (stereotactic breast biopsy), US or MRI guidance.
