During the breast USG examination, mammary glands are scanned with high-frequency sound (ultrasound) waves. During the scan, it is possible to visualise various pathologies without intervention. It is performed in women of any age, but mostly in girls and young women, pregnant and lactating women, as well as women with breast implants. It is advised to have the breast ultrasonography performed until the age of 35 as due to the density of breast tissue changes are better visualised. USG examinations are also used to regularly assess the dynamics of benign fibroadenomas and mammary cysts, inflammations (mastitis, abscesses). They are also used to diagnose other changes.
Ultrasonography of mammary glands is an optional method in women until the age of 35, as well as an auxiliary method in older women.
