Washington Post

A new study adds to the evidence that ultrasonography can help diagnose cancer in women with dense breasts.

Researchers examined data from 2,809 women from across the United States, Canada and Argentina. All of them had dense breasts, plus at least one other risk factor for breast cancer. Each woman had three screenings over three years with mammography and ultrasonography, according to a report in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.
