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.
San Luis Diagnostic Center uses advanced automated breast ultrasound technology from General Electric: The GE Invenia ABUS System. GE Healthcare is the sole provider of this FDA-approved technology designed specifically for screening women with dense breast tissue. Not only does the Invenia ABUS provide increased detection, its unique design provides patient comfort and image reproducibility, making comparison of older studies with newer studies much more reliable for your radiologist and vital for achieving high accuracy screening.
