SonoCiné Breast Exam

Finding Cancers When They're Small

St. Luke's was chosen as the first facility in Missouri to offer the SonoCiné Automated Whole Breast Ultrasound to our patients.

What is SonoCiné?
SonoCiné is an automated whole breast ultrasound exam that, when added to an annual mammogram, may find additional and smaller cancers than mammography alone. However, traditional mammography typically finds cancers small enough to be treated successfully.

Who is a good candidate for the technology?
Women with "dense" breasts are excellent candidates. If a mammogram shows a patient has "dense" breasts, she may want to consider the SonoCiné exam as well.

What are the benefits of this additional exam?
Studies show that an additional ultrasound using the SonoCiné technology can find 40% to 100% more cancers than with mammography alone. It is also computer-guided, requires no breast compression or injections and is permanently recorded for physician review and follow-up.

How do patients schedule an appointment?
Patients 40 years of age or older should schedule an annual screening mammogram, as recommended by the American Cancer Society. At that time, the patient can decide whether or not to have this additional examination (it is not covered by insurance). Screening mammograms are available in the Women's Center located in the East Medical Building on St. Luke's campus on a walk-in basis between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
