Automated 3-D ultrasound screening
Legacy Breast Health Center–Good Samaritan now has automated 3-D ultrasound as a supplemental screening option for breast cancer.
If you have extremely dense breast tissue, like 10% of women in the U.S., the addition of 3-D ultrasound screening can increase the detection of invasive cancers. The 3-D ultrasound screening along with your annual screening mammogram will help provide a more thorough evaluation of your dense breast tissue.
How is automated 3-D ultrasound different from hand-held ultrasound?
Automated 3-D ultrasound provides hundreds of high-resolution images of the entire breast for the radiologist to review, and hand-held ultrasound produces a few representative images.
Legacy has the only FDA-approved 3-D ultrasound system for breast cancer screening when used in combination with mammography and the only automated 3-D ultrasound system in Oregon.
