Ultrasound not included in regular screenings for Islanders with high breast density

Officials with Health P.E.I. say ultrasounds are not currently being used within the provincial breast screening program, and they won’t be anytime soon.

In 2019, Premier Dennis King’s government promised to begin notifying all Islanders who have a mammogram of their breast density. It also promised to look into the potential of adding ultrasound screening for those with the highest breast density.
