What it is: A screening system for women with dense breasts, whole breast ultrasound is typically used in conjunction with digital mammography for early detection of breast cancer. 

How it works: A scanner captures multiple ultrasound images of woman’s breast for physician review on a 3-D workstation. It provides sharp detail resolution along with distinct contrast differentiation, resulting in precise anatomical detail of complex breast tissues and structures.

Why it is used: This is an additional option for women with dense breast tissue, in which tumors otherwise may go undetected with mammography alone.
