Complete Breast Ultrasound Screening (CBUS)
What is a Complete Breast Ultrasound Screening (CBUS)?
Complete Breast Ultrasound Screening is performed in conjunction with a Screening Mammogram to help uncover cancer that may be hidden in women with dense breasts.
CBUS can find more cancers in women with dense breasts compared to mammography alone. At Fairfax Radiology Breast Centers, CBUS is performed only by certified breast sonographers who are experienced in looking at dense breast tissue.
While Mammography is highly effective in finding breast cancer in most women, sometimes a Mammogram screening is not enough. Adding CBUS can find more cancers than Mammography alone in women with dense breasts
