Mamma sonography is usually performed in addition to mammography in case of ambiguous palpitation findings as well as to enable further classification of a conspicuous mammography finding. In women under the age of 40, it is usually the first examination to clarify conspicuous changes.
During mamma sonography, the breast is gently scanned using high-frequency transducers. This radiation-free method is useful particularly for young women and women with dense gland tissue. It is also frequently performed as a supplementary examination to mammography and can provide further important information.
