French Hospital Medical Center has announced that its San Luis Diagnostic Center offers the first and only Automated Breast Ultrasound services in San Luis Obispo County. ABUS is a test that can improve breast cancer detection in women with dense breast tissue by 55 percent over mammography.

Four out of 10 U.S. women have dense breast tissue, and women with high breast density are four to five times more likely to get breast cancer. ABUS makes it possible to detect cancer sooner in these women.
