Mammograms and ultrasounds play an important part in early detection of breast cancer because they can detect early signs of cancer that are too small or subtle to be felt.
Digital mammography has been proven to have an advantage in early detection of breast cancer. It uses digital detectors to produce an image faster than conventional methods, meaning results are almost instant.
The process is similar to a conventional screen-film mammogram wherein the technologist positions your breast from different angles and compresses it with a paddle to obtain optimal image quality.

Total Breast Ultrasound
If your mammogram shows you have dense breasts (less fatty, more connective tissue) you may want to consider a total breast ultrasound in addition to your mammogram. Dense breast tissue shows up white on the mammogram as does cancer. As doctors explain, it's like trying to find a snowball in a snow storm.
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 the mammogram. Cancers, which are also white, can be very hard to detect.
A total breast ultrasound can provide early detection to those with dense breasts in a way that a mammogram alone may not.
Ask your doctor if you have dense breasts and if a breast ultrasound is right for you.
What to Expect with a Breast Ultrasound
A breast ultrasound does not require any radiation, breast compression or injections. The exam is painless and only takes about 20 minutes. Check with your insurance company to find out if breast ultrasound screenings are covered.
