Business in brief


HCA Virginia’s Henrico Doctors’ and Johnston-Willis Hospitals are now offering a new FDA-approved automated breast ultrasound system for imaging women with dense breast tissue, making them the only hospitals in Central Virginia who are offering this new screening option. The Invenia ABUS, or Automated Breast Ultrasound System, is an adjunct to mammography for asymptomatic women with dense breast tissue and no prior interventions. The system is designed to enhance the consistency, reproducibility and sensitivity of whole breast ultrasound, demonstrating a 35.7 percent improvement in cancer detection. Virginia is one of 13 states that has passed legislation mandating that screening mammography patients demonstrating greater than 50 percent breast density should be informed of their density as well as the limitation of screening with mammography alone. > Read more.
