My gynocologist always orders an ultrasound after reading the results of my latest mammograms due to dense breast tissue. He says it should be nothing to worry about, but anyone have experience with this and what I should be looking for or asking the dr. about these tests? It is the second yr. I have gone through both the mammogram and then an ultrasound.
In the past, the physician would order the US, or any other test as recommended on the summary by the reading radiologist. Your physician does not read your film, or request tests (routinely) because of the results. The result will report the findings, the suggestions and overall summary. Most likely, you have an area the radiologist is not able to make a definite reading on and will correlate the US radiological findings with what he thinks it is and go from there.
