Examination :
Usually takes about 10-20 minutes, but best to allow about half hour . After the initial exam, if the reporting radiologist decides that some areas need to be better examined with additional and directed views and/or ultrasound , you may receive a call from us for these extra imaging (happens in about 10% of cases) . Do not be alarmed by this and do not draw any conclusions from this. If you have implants, tell us when booking .
