Welcome to HCM,Thanks for the query.
No its not at all complicated.
You will be asked to lie on your back with your arm raised above your head on the examining bed. For Automated Breast Volume Scanner (ABVS) you will be asked to lie on your back. We will place a pillow underneath your body and find a position where your breast will be flat and your nipple pointing towards the ceiling. You will then be asked to raise your arm above your head.
will apply some gel on your skin and press the handheld probe firmly, moving it back and forth over the area of interest until the desired images are taken. For Automated Breast Volume Scanner (ABVS), our technologist will spread some lotion on the entire breast and bring the scanner to the breast, centering the arrow on your nipple. Your technologist will add some pressure to achieve good contact of the scanner to the breast. The technologist will instruct you to stay still while the scanning is in progress. We will do this procedure for a minimum of three positions and maximum of five positions depending on the cup size of your breast.
The breast ultrasound
exam will take a 15 to 20 minutes.
Hoping good health for ypour mom .
Many Thanks ,
Dr Shilpi Gupta
