Abstract: It is common practice to send patients for an ultrasound (US) examination after mammography if certain detail is not visible and a definite diagnosis cannot be made. However, if the US result will not change the management of the patient the US is considered to be unjustified. The aim of the study was to determine whether referrals for breast US after mammography were justified. As a result, a set of criteria for justified indications for US was drawn up. 18 cases were evaluated using this. tool. The results obtained from this research revealed that the majority of US were justified, though there was still a relatively high percentage of unjustified cases.
