Ultrasound Women's Health

Ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to create images and is an important tool in women's health. It is used as a supplemental breast imaging modality for women who have dense breasts because it can see through dense tissue to identify cancers that are otherwise hidden on their mammograms. Ultrasound is also used for a OB/GYN applications. 

According to ARRS’ American Journal of Roentgenology (AJR), return to routine screening for BI-RADS 3 lesions on supplemental automated whole-breast US (ABUS) substantially reduces the recall rate, while being unlikely to result in adverse outcome

Normal right mediolateral oblique (A) and craniocarudal (B) view screening mammograms demonstrate density C breasts. Coronal (C), transverse (D), and reconstructed lateral (E) views from supplemental automatic breast ultrasound (ABUS) demonstrates 7 mm circumscribed slightly hypoechoic circumscribed lesion at 11 o’clock position in right breast. Lesion was classified as BI-RADS 3. Patient has undergone yearly mammograms for 4 years following the ABUS examination with no breast cancer diagnosis.
