Knowing that modern mammography can miss cancer in dense breast tissue, my colleagues and I at the Knoxville Comprehensive Breast Center have
been performing ultrasound screening since 1983 for dense breasts and indeterminate mammographic clinical findings. We recently helped pass a breast density notification law here in Tennessee. Currently in the United States, more than half of the individual states have passed legislation which requires radiologists to inform women if it is found that they have dense breasts.
