On the off chance that the radiologist suggests a bosom ultrasound, we at that point take the patient straightforwardly over for a bosom ultrasound to be performed. Those pictures are additionally shipped off a similar radiologist. At the point when he reacts with a suggestion, we hand-off this to the patient while they are here with us. On the off chance that the patient has a negative outcome, we at that point let them know. Assume the patient has a positive outcome that necessities further assessment; all things considered, we talk with the patient about their alternatives and attempt to help get this organized as fast as could reasonably be expected.
Tragically, most offices have slack occasions between the analytic mammogram and ultrasound if necessary. At the point when the ultrasound is performed, they will send the patient home to trust that the supplier will get the report, and the patient is the last to know when they are called by telephone or sent a letter.
