SonoCiné Automated Whole Breast Ultrasound (AWBUS) is a comprehensive, systematic ultrasound of all of your breast tissue from the midline to the back including the axilla (arm pit). A computerized arm directs the technician’s speed and areas of capture to assure a complete exam. This allows the radiologist to detect very small tumors ranging from 3-5 mm. Clinical studies indicate a higher detection rate of tumors when AWBUS is paired with screening mammography.  In women with dense breasts, ultrasound is superior to mammography and is more likely to find small invasive node-negative cancers. In women with implants, SonoCiné facilitates evaluation of tissue that is obscured by the implant or is unable to be captured by mammography.
