Diagnostic Imaging Services provides information about an exam commonly performed as part of our women’s imaging portfolio: breast ultrasound.
Ultrasound is safe and painless, and produces pictures of the inside of the body using sound waves. During a breast ultrasound examination the sonographer performing the test may use Doppler techniques to evaluate blood flow or lack of flow in any breast mass. In some cases this may provide additional information as to the cause of the mass. Doppler ultrasound is a special ultrasound technique that evaluates blood flow through a blood vessel.
The primary use of breast ultrasound today is to help diagnose breast abnormalities detected by a physician during a physical exam (such as a lump or bloody or spontaneous clear nipple discharge) and to characterize potential abnormalities seen on mammography or breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
Breast ultrasound is performed at our Metairie – Veterans Memorial Boulevard, Marrero – Avenue C, Slidell and Covington- Highway 21 locations.
Call 504-883-5999 or 985-641-2390 for your very own DIS patient experience. Say “no thank you” to recommendations for hospital imaging as hospital list prices and subsequent charges to your insurance deductible are substantially higher than DIS.
For the same exam and the same results back to your health care provider, why pay more?
