Ultrasound or MRI breast screening for pre menopausal women

Ultrasound or MRI breast screening for pre menopausal women

Change breast cancer screening from mammograms to either ultrasounds or Quick breast MRI scans for pre menopausal women or those with dense breast tissue.

Why is this important?

Mammograms often do not pick up breast cancer for woman who are pre menopausal or have dense breast tissue. In fact according to the NCI (National Cancer Institute), at the time of screening, mammograms miss up to 20% of cancers which are already present in the patient.

This could lead to deadly consequences for many women.
