SAN FRANCISCO - March 21, 2023 - PRLog -- Eve Wellness, a San Francisco-based breast cancer screening clinic, is leading the charge in breast cancer screening by providing women the opportunity to get screened earlier, at any age, without a doctor referral, using their FDA-Approved GE ABUS ultrasound technology, powered by FDA-Approved AI (artificial intelligence), all without radiation. This comes on the heels of the FDA's new mandate, announced on March 9, 2023, requiring all mammography facilities to report breast density information and enhance communications with patients and providers.

The FDA's move is important because the risk of breast cancer is of real concern to many patients, said Dr. Harold Burstein, a medical oncologist at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston and a professor at Harvard Medical School. "The identification of dense breast tissue can be a marker of slightly greater risk of getting breast cancer, and it may need additional breast imaging," said Burstein, who likened the challenge of reading mammograms to "looking through frosted glass."

Breast density has been identified as a risk factor for breast cancer, and the FDA's new mandate aims to increase awareness and understanding of this risk. The mandate requires mammography facilities to provide patients with information about their breast density and the impact it can have on the accuracy of mammograms. Facilities are also required to communicate the findings with healthcare providers and provide recommendations for additional screening options, such as breast ultrasound.

"Today's action represents the agency's broader commitment to support innovation to prevent, detect and treat cancer," said Hilary Marston, M.D., M.P.H., FDA's Chief Medical Officer. "Since 1992, the FDA has worked to ensure patients have access to quality mammography. The impact of the Mammography Quality Standards Act on public health has been significant, including a steep decrease in the number of facilities that do not meet quality standards. This means that more women have access to consistent, quality mammography. We remain committed to advancing efforts to improve the health of women and strengthen the fight against breast cancer."

At Eve Wellness, breast ultrasound is the best option for women with dense breast tissue. Their GE ABUS ultrasound technology, powered by AI, can detect breast cancer at an earlier stage and without the use of radiation. With physician-read results back in less than 48 hours, Eve Wellness provides women with quick results, reducing anxiety and enabling early intervention.

"Breast cancer claims the lives of nearly 43,000 women annually, and early detection is key to improving outcomes. Eve is on a mission to fill the void in breast cancer screening," said Brendan Foley, Co-Founder at Eve Wellness. "We are proud to lead the change in breast screening by providing women with access to the latest technology and empowering them to take control of their breast health."

Eve Wellness is committed to providing women with the best possible breast cancer screening options and is a game-changer in the fight against breast cancer. With the FDA's new mandate, women can feel more informed and empowered in their breast health decisions, and Eve Wellness is here to support them every step of the way.
