October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month---this year 700-thousand women

will undergo surgery on a breast lump to see if it's cancerous.
But there's a new application of an old technology that may help spare women the need for breast biopsy.
(----------------)
VO-NAT


This past spring the F-D-A approved use of High Definition Imaging or H-D-I ultrasound to tell if a breast lump is benign or if it might be cancer.
Older ultrasound machines could only tell a doctor if a lump was solid or a cyst.

Many doctors were skeptical of H-D-I's ability to rule out cancer until a large study showed it was 99 percent accurate in finding a benign lump.
