Here's why you will want to talk with your doctor about
your breast density.
The American Cancer Society now advises
women with extremely dense breast tissue to talk with their doctors
about more definitive imaging. With the addition of breakthrough
automated breast ultrasound (ABUS) and 3D tomosynthesis technology, St.
Anthony Breast Center can provide women with dense breast tissue the
next-level imaging they need.
Studies show some 46%  of all women have breast density in category 3 or 4.
Breast tomosynthesis delivers priceless 3D insight at
no additional cost to your patients. St. Anthony Breast
Center was one of the first hospitals in the nation to
offer this revolutionary technology. 3D mammography
enables radiologists to identify and characterize
individual breast structures at
single-millimeter intervals without
the confusion of overlapping
tissue. This improved imaging
accuracy has increased detection
of invasive breast cancers by 40%
and reduced false-positive rates
by 15%. 
ABUS captures 300 slices at 2mm intervals for precise anatomical detail review without radiation. Ours is the first and only ultrasound system developed and FDA approved specifically for breast cancer screening in women with dense breast tissue. ABUS has been shown to improve breast cancer detection by 35.7% over mammography alone.  Multiple clinical research studies demonstrate that radiologists can detect more cancers at an earlier, more treatable stage when using ABUS as an added screening tool with mammography.
