Contact TCFMI at 416-368-8488 to Schedule Your Automated Breast Ultrasound Appointment (ABUS)
An Automated Breast Ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves to take 3D images of the whole breast, targeting specific areas and ensuring they are displayed in a reproducible fashion. It is especially beneficial to women with dense breast tissue, because a high breast density score can make a mammogram harder to read and ABUS allows the technologist to check the breast from a variety of angles offering more accurate interpretations.
Automated Breast Ultrasound is often recommended as supplemental screening in conjunction with a screening mammography for women with extremely dense breast tissue, and women with heterogeneously dense breast tissue.
