Ultrasound is a noninvasive, safe, and painless imaging tool that uses sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the breast which are used to evaluate breast abnormalities. In ultrasound, also called sonography, a water-based gel is applied to the skin and a small, hand-held transducer (probe) is placed on the breast in the area to be examined. High-frequency sound waves are sent from the probe into the body and the probe collects sounds that bounce back and transmits them to a computer. As the technologist moves the transducer around the examination area, a computer creates an image that radiologists use to find disease.
To schedule, please call our scheduling team at (512) 453-6100 or toll free at (800) 998-8214. A provider referral is required to make an appointment.
A radiologist, a physician specifically trained to interpret radiological examinations, will analyze the images and send a signed report to the provider who referred you to ARA. The physician will then share the results with you. Your report will also be available on the patient portal within 3 days from your exam.
