… to analyzing the image
The people who analyze ultrasounds, mammograms or MRI scans are radiologists. Radiologists are doctors who work full-time on the analysis of medical images, forming diagnoses based on them. If you’ve ever broken your arm or leg, you’ll probably have had an image taken which was checked by a radiologist.
Breast imaging is a subspecialty of radiology that focuses on breast images. So your breast image will be analyzed by a radiologist who has received specialized training in breast structure and images.
The radiologist receives the images along with your patient file, interprets them and writes down their findings. It’s possible that the radiologist suggests more tests, in case the images don’t indicate one exclusive explanation.
