Lifesaving advancements in breast Imaging technology
Breast tomosynthesis is a breakthrough in mammography technology that provides a clearer, more accurate view of the breast. Tomosynthesis technology is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration but it is still not widely available. In addition to breast tomosynthesis increasing early detection of cancer and increasing patient piece of mind, learn how this technology can help save your life.
Denise Davidson will speak on the importance of tomosynthesis technology. She is the Women’s Healthcare and mammography Specialist with Hologic, Inc. She provides clinical expertise, assistance, and equipment operations support to hospitals, technologists and physicians. As an educator, lecturer on Breast Imaging and new technologies, co-author, and a past president of the Washington State Breast Health Task Force for the American Cancer Society, Denise believes that education is the first step in prevention and saving lives.
