How Does Automated Whole Breast Ultrasound compare to Mammography in Dense Breast?

Breast cancer survival rate triples with early detection. Unfortunately, women who have dense breasts tend to be diagnosed late, as mammograms have trouble detecting small tumors embedded in dense tissue. Automated Whole Breast Ultrasound (AWBUS), a breakthrough technology in cancer screening, is not only better at detecting smaller tumors (as small as 3 mm) even in dense breasts: it is also radiation-free. Image: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2822222/figure/Fig1/ Even though mammography is an excellent tool to help doctors diagnosis breast cancer early in a fatty breast, women with dense breasts run a significant risk of slipping through the cracks until tumors grow larger and more dangerous. Radiologist Dr. Kevin Kelly has been studying the effects of AWBUS in conjunction with mammography, and found that, just as survival rate triples with early detection, early detection triples with AWBUS.Please read the abstract published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) for more information about this incredible innovation in cancer screening.
