Automated Breast Ultrasound Screening (ABUS)
What is an Automated Breast Ultrasound Screening (ABUS)?
Fairfax Radiology was the first in Northern Virginia to offer ABUS—an advanced breast cancer-screening tool that is performed in conjunction with a Screening Mammogram to help uncover cancer that may be hidden in women with dense breasts.
While Mammography is highly effective in finding breast cancer in most women, sometimes a Mammogram screening is not enough. Adding ABUS can find more cancers than Mammography alone in women with dense breasts.
