ABUS How to Get an ABUS Screening

Make a one-hour Results by Request® appointment at the Breast Center at Northwest Community Hospital. To make an appointment, call 847.618.3700.

If the radiologist indicates that you have dense breasts, you may be able to have an ABUS screening following your mammogram appointment.

You must have your mammogram at the Breast Center location at Northwest Community Hospital to be able to have an ABUS screening following your mammogram appointment; it is not yet available at any other NCH mammography locations.

Check with your insurance company. According to the Affordable Care Act, insurance companies are mandated to cover screenings. Most insurance companies are aware of this new ABUS imaging modality and have some form of coding in place. However, we always encourage patients to check with their insurance providers before having imaging tests.

To learn more about ABUS screenings for dense breasts, call 847.618.7431 or ask your physician.
