Automated Breast Ultrasound (ABUS)

Innovative Breast Cancer Screening For Women With Dense Breast Tissue

Automated Breast Ultrasound System (ABUS) is a comfortable screening option for women with dense breast tissue. Approximately four out of ten American women have dense breasts, which can increase a woman’s risk of developing breast cancer by four to six times. When used in conjunction with mammography, ABUS can find cancers that mammography misses, improving breast cancer detection by 55 percent over mammography alone.
