Breast ultrasound is a powerful tool that we use to characterize abnormalities that we've found other ways.

So once we've identified a lesion on a mammogram or if a patient comes in with a lump that she or her physician can feel, we use the ultrasound to characterize it, to tell us whether it's cystic or solid, and also to help us plan a biopsy.

Ultrasound is the simplest, easiest, most comfortable way to have a biopsy.
