Breast Ultrasound at The UVM Medical Center

A breast ultrasound is a diagnostic test that uses high-frequency sound waves to take pictures of the body. There is no radiation from ultrasound. This test may be recommended if you have a breast problem, such as a lump or to clarify the results of your mammogram. Breast ultrasound may be used, in addition to mammography, for supplementary screening (in addition to mammography) of high-risk patients or those with dense breasts

Breast ultrasound also enables our breast imaging specialists to take a close look at certain breast masses. It may help determine whether or not a lump is a cyst or a more concerning abnormality. Our experienced diagnostic medical sonographers are nationally certified in breast ultrasound and work in conjunction with breast imaging radiologists who interpret your exam. 

National Recognition in Breast Ultrasound

The University of Vermont Medical Center is accredited by the American College of Radiology in breast ultrasound, including diagnostic tests and ultrasound-guided interventional procedures such as breast biopsies. This means our services meet nationally recognized standards of clinical excellence.

What to Expect During a Breast Ultrasound

A breast ultrasound is painless and does not expose you to radiation. A hand-held instrument is placed on the skin and transmits sound waves through the breast. The information is translated by a computer into an image on a screen.
