Mayo Clinic Talks: Breast Imaging for Patients with Dense Breast Tissue
Registration required for CME credit
Breast cancer is very treatable when detected early. Therefore, early detection becomes very important as it significantly reduces a patient’s risk of developing metastases and death. Breast imaging plays an extremely important role in the detection of early breast cancer, and we now have several modalities of breast imaging available, each with its advantages and disadvantages. Our guest for this podcast is Christina Dilaveri, M.D. a breast disease specialist, from Mayo Clinic’s Rochester Campus. We’ll discuss mammography, ultrasound, MRI, and molecular breast imaging, when they’re indicated, and the advantages of each. You’ll hear which patients should have more than a mammogram and how often it should be performed.
Specific topics discussed:
• The various types of mammography available
• Indications for breast ultrasound
• Benefits of breast MRI
• When breast MRI should be performed
• Benefits of molecular breast imaging
• When molecular breast imaging should be performed
