Ultrasound Tests Better in Detecting Breast Cancer, Says Study

University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine researchers have been claiming that if you are unable to access mammograms for any possible reason, you need not to worry as an ultrasound screening can be a best alternative to the same to get detected for early breast cancer.

The findings would in particular prove to be a great help for people living in the countries where mammograms are not readily accessible. While the alternate option is convenient, the same is easily affordable as well, the team says.

The study had been conducted to find if ultrasound was being used as an additional testing to screening mammography, though the same revealed that the MRIs or ultrasound tests were only being used to detect the cancer.

ACRIN 6666 study was considered to look at the usage of ultrasound tests. 2,662 participants from 21 sites in the U. S., Argentina and Canada were involved in the same, who had completed yearly mammography screening in three rounds. Later, whole breast ultrasound screening was conducted with a 12-month clinical follow-up.

It was found that ultrasounds were a good option with the only defect that more false positive alarms were being made by these. ""We found that breast cancer detection with ultrasound alone compares quite favorably to mammography alone, and was actually better at detecting early invasive breast cancers ", affirmed Wendie Berg, M. D., Ph. D.
