Caption: Ultrasound image of a female breast showing a cyst (the central, elongated black area). The image is made by passing a series of high frequency sound waves through the breast. The scanning device used also acts as a receiver, picking up ultrasonic echos as they are reflected back from the internal structures. An echo is produced each time an ultrasonic pulse encounters the interface between different densities of tissue. This well-defined black object represents the typical appearance of a fluid-filled breast cyst on an ultrasound scan.
