Ultrasound  
 
Ultrasound is a great addition to mammogram. Routinely in South Africa women get both done at the same time. Ultrasounds are really good at complementing a mammogram, or seeing problems in younger women. They can also see fluid better, and can be used to guide a needle to the right place if you need a biopsy.

The accuracy of ultrasound depends on the experience of the person carrying it out, which is why it is a good idea to make sure your test is done by a radiologist specialised in looking at the breast.
