Holyoke Medical Center Offers Program On Technologies Used To Diagnose Breast Cancer
Holyoke Medical Center will offer an educational program on the different technologies used to diagnose breast cancer on Tuesday, October 22, 2013 at 6 p.m. in the medical center's Auxiliary Conference Center. The program will be presented by Radiologist Dr. Stephen Urbanski and is part of the ongoing Dessert With The Docs series.
Screenings are the most effective way to catch breast cancer early, in its most treatable stages. Exams such as mammograms are able to find cancer when it is very small and often before symptoms are present. As technology continues to improve, screenings may help to save thousands of lives each year. Dr. Urbanski will discuss the various technologies available, including mammograms, ultrasound, and MRI in breast Imaging.
Free clinical breast exams will be available before this lecture from 5-6 p.m. in the Oncology Department at Holyoke Medical Center and will be performed by a female physician. Please call (413) 534-2789 for an appointment.
