The ultrasound department in the Women's Center is accredited by the American College of Radiology for ultrasound studies in obstetrics, ultrasound-guided interventions in breast biopsies, and for general use, such as in laproscopic gallbladder surgery. The Women's Center also features a new advanced state-of-the-art ultrasound system for more accurate breast cancer detection.
Automated Breast Ultrasound System
The automated breast ultrasound system (ABUS) is approved by the FDA for breast cancer screening. Used in conjunction with mammography, ABUS improves cancer detection in dense breast tissue.
The OSF Saint Anthony Women’s Center recommends that women get regular mammograms as suggested by their doctors, and if they have been informed that they have dense breast tissue, they should talk to their doctors about their specific risks and additional screening tests that might be appropriate.
ABUS screening is available at the OSF Saint Anthony Women's Center on the main hospital campus.
