New Tech Leads to Comfortable Mammogram Alternative

New ultrasound technology developed in Detroit can potentially detect breast cancers masked by dense breast tissue more accurately than conventional ultrasound, and without the discomfort of a traditional mammogram.  Instead of compressing the breast between two plates and manipulating it to various viewing angles, the SoftVue technology has the patient lie on a table with the breast submerged in a reservoir of warm water. It takes less than two minutes to scan the whole breast, including the chest wall, without touching the patient.
