National SOMO•INSIGHT Clinical Study Investigating Ultrasound Screening with Mammography for Women with Dense Breasts
Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital announced today that it has joined U-Systems national clinical research study designed to evaluate whether digital mammography, when combined with the somo•v™ Automated Breast Ultrasound System (ABUS) from U-Systems, Inc (Sunnyvale, CA), is more sensitive in detecting breast lesions compared to mammography alone in women with dense breasts. Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital is the only site in Michigan, and one of only ten breast cancer centers in the entire country, currently recruiting women for the SOMO•INSIGHT clinical study.
Clinical Study May Detect Breast Cancer Hidden By Dense Tissue
Friday, 19 March 2010
In 2000, 40-year-old Stephanie Annable had what she thought would be another routine mammogram. But in her film, the radiologist saw a small cluster of calcifications. Those turned out to be Stage 0 breast cancer.
Annable knew how fortunate she was the calcifications were even picked up. As with an estimated 60 percent of American women, Annable had dense breast tissue, which is made up of more connective tissue and appears white on a mammogram. Because cancer also appears white on a mammogram, tumors can be difficult to detect.

CHOMP among hospitals to test new equipment
Breast cancer can hide in plain sight. In women with denser breast tissue than normal, traditional mammograms may miss dangerous tumors.
To address this, Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula is one of 10 centers taking part in a U.S. Food and Drug Administration clinical trial that will look at 20,000 women to test a new technology that promises to spot breast cancer more often.

U-Systems announced today that Radiology Regional Center has initiated participation in the SOMO•INSIGHT Clinical Study. The first breast center in Southwest Florida to participate, Radiology Regional Center is recruiting participants for the national clinical research study designed to evaluate whether digital mammography in combination with the somo•v™ Automated Breast Ultrasound System (ABUS) from U-Systems is more sensitive to detecting breast lesions when compared to Mammography alone in women with dense breasts.>
