Soft Tissue Mass Ultrasound

Soft Tissue Mass Ultrasound is an exam that evaluates palpable superficial nodules with sound waves. It can assist in diagnosing problems, such as cysts or lipomas.

Procedure

  • You will lie on an exam table with the area of concern exposed.
  • A non-greasy gel will be applied to your skin during the exam.
  • The sonographer will use a hand-held transducer (probe) against your skin to obtain images of the palpable nodule.

Preparation

  • Arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment with a prescription if your doctor has given one to you.

Considerations

  • Let the technologist know:
    • If you have had any previous surgery.
    • If you take any medication.
