Breast Ultrasound Scan

Breast ultrasound is a crucial imaging technique used to examine the structures within the breast, aiding in the detection and diagnosis of various breast conditions. At London Private Ultrasound in Central London, we offer advanced breast ultrasound services to provide comprehensive evaluation and personalized care for individuals with breast health concerns. Let’s delve into the uses, benefits, and diagnostic applications of breast ultrasound:

Uses and Benefits:

Breast Cancer Screening: Breast ultrasound is often used as a supplemental screening tool, particularly for women with dense breast tissue or those at high risk for breast cancer. It helps detect breast abnormalities that may not be visible on mammograms alone.
Evaluation of Breast Lumps: Breast ultrasound is instrumental in evaluating breast lumps or masses detected during physical examination or mammography. It can help differentiate between benign (non-cancerous) and malignant (cancerous) breast lesions, guiding further diagnostic and treatment decisions.
Assessment of Breast Pain: Breast ultrasound can aid in assessing the cause of breast pain or discomfort, identifying cysts, fibroadenomas, or other benign breast conditions that may be contributing to symptoms.

Diagnostic Applications:

Breast Mass Evaluation: Breast ultrasound can characterize breast masses based on their size, shape, margins, and internal characteristics, helping determine whether further evaluation or biopsy is necessary.
Cyst vs. Solid Lesion Differentiation: Breast ultrasound can differentiate between fluid-filled cysts and solid lesions, aiding in the diagnosis and management of benign breast conditions.
Axillary Lymph Node Assessment: Breast ultrasound can assess the axillary lymph nodes for enlargement or abnormalities, which may indicate the spread of breast cancer.
Post-operative Evaluation: Breast ultrasound is used to evaluate the breast tissue following surgical procedures such as lumpectomy or mastectomy, monitoring for recurrent tumors or post-operative complications.
Breast Implant Assessment: Breast ultrasound is valuable for assessing the integrity of breast implants and detecting complications such as implant rupture, leakage, or capsular contracture.
