BREAST ULTRASOUNDS

 

Ultrasound imaging uses high frequency sound waves to view inside the body. The images are captured in real-time and can show doctors the movement of the body’s internal organs and blood flows through the blood vessels.

Ultrasounds are used extensively during pregnancy and doctors often use them as the first diagnostic test for abdominal, pelvic and musculoskeletal pain.

The Laszlo Tabar Breast Centre offers the most comprehensive breast ultrasound service on the Sunshine Coast, utilising 3-D imaging for lesion characterisation. It provides diagnostic breast ultrasound, fine-needle aspiration biopsy and ultrasound guided core biopsy.

Our radiologist interprets your ultrasound images and provides your doctor with a comprehensive report of the examination.

If a breast biopsy is required, our focus is on providing special techniques to minimise pain and anxiety; it is all part of our commitment to providing a caring patient environment. A cytologist is always on site for all fine-needle aspiration biopsies
