    ARRS: Don’t underestimate breast US in cancer arsenal” By: Kate Madden Yee  May 3rd, 2017

    For women with extremely dense breasts, ultrasound is still the best screening tool out there even though there are more fancy options.  A study done by Dr. Georgia Giakoumis-Spear of NorthShore University HealthSystem found that women who had had prior callbacks with mammography were 3.6 times more likely to be called back because of an automated breast ultrasound finding.  Also, women with prior breast cancer were 6.1 times more likely to have cancer found by ABUS.
