As a result, they give doctors more insight into breast symptoms, an abnormal mammogram or an abnormal clinical exam. An ultrasound of the breast is often performed in conjunction with a diagnostic mammogram. Dr. Shetty or his associate will spend time with the patient and discuss the results following the exam. Dr. Shetty may recommend additional breast imaging exams or biopsy that may help reach a final diagnosis.
