Mammograms alone may not be enough to find breast cancer
Every woman’s breasts are different, just like every flower is different. Having dense breasts is normal. It just means your breasts have more tissue than fat. Dense breasts make a woman up to six times more likely to develop breast cancer. And they make it challenging to detect cancer with a standard mammography exam. Now at North Country Diagnostic Imaging, the Invenia™ ABUS (Automated Breast Ultrasound System) improves cancer detection by 35% over mammography in women with dense breasts. Using 3D ultrasound, it looks at dense breasts differently to find cancer that mammography may not see. It’s relatively comfortable, and it doesn’t expose you to any additional radiation. The result: More confidence and peace of mind for you.
