Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula’s Breast Care Center in Monterey, Calif., has become the first provider in California to participate in the SOMO-INSIGHT clinical study.

Community Hospital is recruiting participants for the U.S. clinical study designed to evaluate whether digital mammography in combination with the somo•v Automated Breast Ultrasound System (ABUS) from U-Systems is more sensitive to detecting breast lesions when compared to mammography alone in women with dense breasts.

The multicenter study intends to recruit more than 20,000 women.

Sunnyvale, Calif.-based U-Systems said its somo•v ABUS is currently cleared under FDA 510(k).
