4. Breast Ultrasound Screening
Once your medical form is completed, a female RDMS Sonographer will bring you to the private exam room. You will be given a gown and asked to remove your clothing from the waist up. Unlike mammography, Breast Ultrasound is compression-free so it will be a completely painless experience. Your RDMS Sonographer will then go through the brief medical history questionnaire you completed. After this, the Sonographer is ready to begin the screening test. A n ultrasound probe with warm gel will be used to begin screening both breasts and the axilla (armpit) area.
5. Receive the Results
After the completion of your screening, your test will be read by our board-certified radiologist. From that point, your results will be mailed to the address you provide on your medical form within 12-14 business days from the day of your appointment.
