Comparison of Cancer Yields and Diagnostic Performance of Screening Mammography vs. Supplemental Screening Ultrasound in 4394 Women with Average Risk for Breast Cancer

H. J. Moon, I. Jung, S. J. Park, M. J. Kim, J. H. Youk, E. K. Kim

Moon et al. retrospectively investigated and compared the total cancer yields, invasive cancer yields, diagnostic performances, and short-term follow-up rates of screening mammography and supplemental screening US which was performed after a final assessment of ACR BI-RADS category 1 or 2 on screening mammography in women ≥ 40 years at average risk regardless of breast parenchymal density. Finally, the effectiveness of supplemental screening US was inferred from the results.
