A soft tissue mass ultrasound would be requested if you or your doctor wants to assess the contents of a superficial lump (just beneath the skin) on your body. A lump may contain fat, fluid, or solid tissue. This exam helps your doctor decide if this area needs another test to diagnose the type of tissue in the lump.
We do our best to have our radiologists interpret the information and forward the results to your doctor by the next business day.
This exam is covered under the Alberta and Saskatchewan Health Care Plans.
Please ensure that you bring your requisition with you to your appointment.
