Ultrasound: Breast

This exam utilizes high frequency ultrasound waves to assess masses felt by physical exam or seen on a mammogram. Hence, the exam is considered a targeted, rather than a screening exam. It is most frequently used to distinguish cyst (>98% chance benign) from a solid ( 5-25% cancerous {age and hereditary dependent})mass.

The exam is offered at:

Houston Northwest Medical Center 
Cypress Fairbanks Hospital
Tomball Regional Hospital
