Over the past several years, Dr. Rachel Brem, The Director of Breast Imaging at The George Washington University Medical Faculty Associates has been the principal investigator for a nationwide clinical trial which enrolled more than 16-thousand women evaluating ABUS in clinical practice.

Dense breast tissue not only increases the risk of breast cancer up to 4-6 times but also makes cancer more difficult to detect via mammography according to multiple large studies. "As breast density goes up, the accuracy of the mammogram goes down," says Dr. Brem. "ABUS allows us to identify and treat these cancers that could not have been detected by mammography alone. This is a game changer in that we can now target our screening to the individual needs of a women, an exciting advance in improved breast cancer detection and individualized medicine."

The George Washington University Medical Faculty Associates is largest, independent physician group in metropolitan Washington and is affiliated with The George Washington University School of Medicine & Health Sciences. It is comprised of 700 physicians who deliver care through 51 medical and surgical specialties, which are supported by academic medicine and clinical research. www.gwdocs.com
