As more and more studies reveal the sad truth about mammograms, many women are left wondering what to do.
We all want better, safer and more conclusive ways to find tiny invasive breast cancers while also avoiding cumulative radiation harms, false scares, overdiagnosis and overtreatment.
Just today, a Danish study debunking mammograms was all over the news. I heard physicians and reporters alike say — we need better technology! One reporter even said, “Mammograms are barbaric.”
I couldn’t agree more. And I’m thrilled to have recently discovered that better technology already exists. It’s called SonoCiné Automated Whole Breast Ultrasound (AWBUS) and it was invented by Dr. Kevin Kelly, a radiologist of 34 years who was passionate about improving ultrasound technology in an effort to find the tiniest cancers often missed by mammography (especially in dense breast tissue).
Not only does it find the earliest of invasive cancers in extremely dense breast tissue, there is no squishing, no pain, no radiation, no IV, and no contrast dye.
While SonoCiné is officially marketed as a supplement to mammograms and not as a replacement, I believe there is enough evidence to say bye-bye to mammograms forever! In case you are into the science, check out my recent article, The Downside Of Mammograms: What Your Doctor May Not Be Telling You. It lists the studies as well as experts speaking out against mammography.
Here’s what women can do NOW to be the change needed for better, safer, more conclusive breast imaging…
- Listen to Dr. Kevin Kelly’s important Tedx Talk: The future of breast cancer detection is already here .
- Watch exam video and find out all about SonoCiné here.
- Ask your primary care doctor or GYN to order this test and find a location here.
- Watch Happygram the movie featuring Dr. Kelly.
- Watch The Promise – about the harms of the routine breast screening program.
