Finally, clear answers for women with dense breasts.

Traditional mammography has difficulty imaging through dense breasts. If a mammogram determines you have dense breasts, a QTscan at a QTbreasthealth center near you can help give you peace of mind.

Don’t wait to get the answers you need.

50% of women have dense breasts, putting them at increased risk of breast cancer.3

This year, over 250,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer.4 Being proactive through accurate imaging is the best step for early detection.

Did you receive a letter after your mammogram that recommended further testing?

A clear image. A clear path forward.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are dense breasts?

    Dense breasts have a greater percentage of fibroglandular tissue than other breasts made up of more fatty tissue. On a typical mammogram, fatty breast tissue appears dark—but dense breast tissue appears as solid white areas.5

    Regular Breast vs Dense Breast

    This makes it difficult for doctors to identify potentially problematic nodules, such as tumors, since they mimic the appearance of dense breast tissue. Our innovative QTscan can see right through the dense areas.

  • What causes dense breasts?

    Your breasts are composed of a collection of ducts, milk glands, and supportive tissue that make up dense breasts, as well as fatty (non-dense) breast tissue. It’s the ratio of fatty and supportive tissue that determines if you have dense breasts.

  • Are dense breasts common?

    Yes, extremely. Roughly half of all women have dense breast tissue.

  • Why do women with dense breasts need additional imaging after a mammogram?

    While a mammogram is an important health tool for women, a pain-free, radiation-free and injection-free QTscan follow-up may be an appropriate second step for women with dense breast tissue. Mammogram technology has challenges in seeing through dense breasts, and that makes a QTscan or an ultrasound a good option to help spot suspicious areas.

  • Can dense breast tissue turn into cancer?

    Higher breast density leads to a higher risk of developing breast cancer. Your dense breast tissue can mask malignant cells during conventional mammograms. However, the QTscan can help detect these abnormal cells, even within extremely dense breast tissue.

  • Can exercise cause dense breast tissue?

    No. In fact, doctors say exercising, keeping a healthy body weight, eating healthy foods, limiting alcohol intake and never using tobacco are effective weapons against breast cancer.6
