We believe early detection is crucial to breast health. At Renown, you will receive the highest level of care with a team of highly trained doctors, nurses, and technologists as well as the most advance technology and digital mammography.

Research shows early detection can increase breast cancer survival. Breast cancer screening can involve a number of different types of examinations including mammography and SonoCiné, a whole breast ultrasound for women with dense breast tissue and/or implants.

The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecologists recommends women age 40 and older with average risk should get a yearly mammogram. Additional, researchers’ state that other risk factors should be taken into account when making a mammogram decision:

  • Breast-tissue density
  • History of biopsy
  • Family history of breast cancer
  • Women’s own preferences

If you are 40 or older, you do not need a referral from a doctor for a mammogram.

SonoCiné Whole Breast Ultrasound

For Women with Dense-Breast Tissue and/or Breast Implants

Mammography misses 50 to 60% of breast cancers in women with dense-breast tissue. For women with dense breasts and/or breast implants, SonoCiné, whole breast ultrasound, is a supplementary ultrasound examination of both breasts designed to find small cancers that are missed by mammography. It is not a replacement for screening mammography.

Having SonoCiné, in combination and comparison to your mammogram can give you the full picture of your breast health. These two screening procedures can provide early detection to those with dense breasts and/or breast implants in a way that a mammogram alone may not. To find out if you have dense-breast tissue, ask the technologist during your mammogram screening or your doctor.

Mammography vs. SonoCiné


Mammogram vs SonoCiné Benefits and tradeoffs

Image A – Tiny cancers, which are white, are easily visible in fatty breasts, which show up dark on a mammogram.

Image B – Dense-breast tissue shows up white on a mammogram. Cancers, which are also white, can be very hard to detect. It is often described as looking for a snowball in a snowstorm.

When researching ultrasound screening tools, questions to consider include:


How comfortable is the examination?

  • SonoCiné whole breast ultrasound does not require any radiation, breast compression or injections. The examination is painless and only takes about 30 minutes.

Does the examination cover all or just some of your breast tissue?

  • SonoCiné whole breast ultrasound imaging wand enables images under the arm, lower lymph nodes, outer breast tissue, clavicle and inner breast tissue giving a complete breast health picture.

Through documented clinical studies, what is the average size cancer that has been discovered by this examination?

  • SonoCiné whole breast ultrasound, combined with a mammogram, can detect cancers as small as 5mm. Finding cancers when they are small and more treatable saves lives.

Through documented clinical studies, what success in breast cancer detection has this examination shown?

  • When combined with a mammogram, studies show SonoCiné whole breast ultrasound is 100% more effective than mammography alone in women with dense breasts and, 200% more effective in finding cancers under 10mm.

Are the images of the breast still photos or moving video?

  • SonoCiné whole breast ultrasound is the only breast screening tool to use moving images which are “stitched” together in the form of a movie. As the movie of the breast tissue is played, any dark abnormality “pops” out so the doctor can easily see a “spot”. The doctor can stop, move forward and backward to study the abnormality to better understand what is being seen and determine if the patient needs to come back for further diagnostic studies.

Is SonoCiné covered by insurance?

Your insurance may pay for SonoCiné. If your insurance pays for the cost of this screening, you will need a referral from your doctor. For those not covered or without insurance, you do not need a referral and the cost is $125.
