VANCOUVER, Oct. 8, 2013 /CNW/ - Port Moody Naturopathic Health and Wellness Clinic is now offering screening for early breast cancer detection with highly effective Automated Breast UltraSound (ABUS). ABUS is a breakthrough technology that helps find cancers that may be "hidden" in dense breast tissue and may not be detected in a regular mammography. Used adjunct with mammography, it has been shown to double and even triple the detection rates of breast cancer. ABUS is available only in a handful of clinics.
"With the help of breakthrough technology such as ABUS, Port Moody Health & Wellness Clinic aims to dramatically improve breast cancer care and recovery." - Dr Sharon Gurm.
Early detection of breast cancer is critically important because the five-year survival rate is close to 90% when cancers are detected early. Cancers that go undetected at the early stages may require more aggressive treatment options and are associated with poorer outcomes.
