Fortunately, the latest technology, the whole breast ultrasound, provides a new level of detection for women with dense breast tissue. How do you know if you have dense tissue? What are the next steps if cancer is detected? Find out in our chat with <a title="Georgia Spear, MD" href="" target="_top">Dr. Georgia Spear</a>, Director of the <a title="Clinical Breast MRI Program" href="/link/291331fa1fb84ad6be0ae3d99a4deab1.aspx" target="_top">Clinical Breast MRI Program</a> at NorthShore.
