Modern x-ray technology is sometimes not enough to properly evaluate different varieties of breast tissue, and at the Knoxville Comprehensive Breast Center (KCBC), we offer the next step in diagnostic testing with our high-resolution diagnostic breast ultrasound.

Although an annual mammogram can usually be effectively used to view and diagnose breast tissue abnormalities, there are circumstances where ultrasound may also be used. Also known as sonography, this type of ultrasound uses sound waves emitted via a microphone-like transducer that bounce off of breast tissues and are interpreted by a computer into black and white images. A gel will be put onto your breast area prior to the transducer being placed on your skin, making this exam very tolerable with minimal discomfort.
