Breast ultrasound is recommended for the detection of tissue and structural lesions in the breasts (cyst, tumour, etc.) under the age of 35, while ultrasound is used as an additional examination for mammography and, if appropriate, breast tomosynthesis in women over 35 years of age.
Painless ultrasound is performed while you are lying on your back and on your side. In addition to the breasts, the right and left armpits are also examined.
Breast ultrasound can also be performed during pregnancy.
The examination does not require any special preparation.
