|Added advantage of automated breast ultrasound in the detection of breast lesions in mammographically dense breast|
ABUS can detect mammographically occult breast lesions ,accurately detects lesion location and size. It has sensitivity higher than HHUS ,but less accuracy and specificity. However, it is reproducible ,non operator dependent ,and less time consuming for radiologist. DM should be used in combination with ABUS due to the high capability of DM to detect microcalcifications. ABUS is a new promising tool that can be implemented in dense breast workup as a screening tool as well as diagnostic tool.
