Key considerations

Specifically designed to improve imaging for dense breasts, breast implants, and women in need of repeat imaging (family history or previous breast cancer).

Used as a breast cancer screening tool for nearly four decades, but has a minimal radiation risk. Some research shows they may lead to overdiagnosis.14

Provides a better view and and fewer false positives than conventional mammography. Women concerned about radiation should consult their doctor before choosing this.

Uses sound waves to make an image of the inside of the breast. It’s often used to look for lumps that can be felt but not seen on a mammogram.

Often used for women who have a high risk of breast cancer, it uses magnetic fields to create an image and is more invasive because a contrast agent is given through an IV.

Early detection saves lives.

If you are worried, don’t wait. Breast imaging can detect cancers before you can feel them – when they are smaller, at an earlier stage, and more likely curable.
