Hoag Provides Comfort and Peace of Mind Through Breast Screenings

Breast ultrasound is a comfortable procedure using harmless, high frequency sound waves to form images of the breast. During the exam, gel is spread over the breast while an instrument (a transducer) is placed against the skin translating images onto a monitor. The exam is painless and usually takes 15 to 20 minutes.

Why Breast Ultrasound?

  • It is a supplementary exam of both breasts that can find small cancers that mammography can miss. Breast Ultrasound is not a replacement for mammography; the combination of the two studies has been shown to improve breast cancer detection.
  • Can be helpful to further screen women with dense breasts or implants whose mammogram may be difficult to interpret, or in pregnant women
  • Used to assess characteristics of a lump or mass

Breast ultrasound is available at Hoag Breast Centers in Newport Beach, Irvine (Sand Canyon) and Huntington Beach.

*In a preventative effort to protect our patients and help reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus, breast screening appointments will be scheduled mid-May and beyond. Our staff remains available to make appointments. Hoag Breast Centers will continue to preform diagnostic imaging services and DEXA exams during this time.
