Currently, mammography is the only exam approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to screen
for breast cancer in women with no signs of breast cancer. However, ultrasound (also called sonography) may also be useful in detecting breast cancer,
according to a new study. The study found that in
women with dense breast tissue, ultrasound found a significant number of cancers in patients whose mammograms appeared normal. While the researchers are not recommending that ultrasound in any way
replace mammography, they do say that ultrasound appears to be a helpful screening tool for these women when performed in conjunction with mammography.
