According to the results of a trial conducted by the American College of Radiology Imaging Network, it is beneficial to supplement an annual mammogram with an ultrasound for those women who have an elevated risk of cancer. The study, which was published in the Journal of American Medical Association, found that most of the cancers found by the additional ultrasound were in early stages.
