U-Systems, Sunnyvale, Calif, announced that the Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital in Detroit has joined U-Systems’ national study evaluating the sensitivity of digital mammography with the somo•v Automated Breast Ultrasound System (ABUS) for women with dense breast tissue.

The Henry Ford center is the only site in Michigan, and one of only ten breast cancer centers in the U.S. that is currently recruiting women for the SOMO•INSIGHT clinical study.

The SOMO•INSIGHT multi-center study will enroll up to 20,000 women at participating clinical study sites to determine the sensitivity of mammography and somo•v together, compared to mammography alone for women with greater than fifty percent dense breast tissue.

Visit SOMO•INSIGHT for more information on the study.
