WORKING IN BREAST SONOGRAPHY
A breast sonogram is a specialized procedure often used to follow up an abnormal mammogram or clinical exam. As a breast sonographer, you’ll use a transducer on the patient’s breast to produce ultrasound images. A doctor will then analyze the images and use them in diagnosis. You might also assist with interventional procedures, such as biopsies.
Breast sonograms are noninvasive—and they don’t use radiation. Nevertheless, your patients might be nervous or have questions about the procedure. With ARRT credentials in breast sonography, you’ll have the knowledge to explain the process, capture the best images possible, and provide a calming presence to your patients.
