1. What is your breast cancer specialty?
2. Why is this an important part of breast cancer care?
Screening mammography often results in earlier detection allowing more and
better therapeutic options – i.e. lumpectomy rather than mastectomy,
as well as mortality reduction.
Diagnostic breast imaging – including mammography and ultrasound – is
key to evaluation of clinical signs and symptoms of breast disease, as well
as abnormal findings detected at screening.
3. How is this different then what might be offered in the
community (outside of UC Irvine )?
Being an academic center wehave the most knowledgeable and very best qualified
radiologists. We also can perform image-guided biopsies with ultrasound and
stereotactic guidance which allow more accurate diagnoses and better cosmetic
4. What will my (the patient) experience be like?
Because we have a true multidisciplinary breast center including surgeons
, radiologists,radiation oncologists,medical oncologists, genetic counselors
in a single center ,we can provide more convenient, better ,faster care. The
UC Irvine breast center is a warm environment with friendly, caring staff.
5. What current studies, or novel options within your
specialty are currently available?
None right now at UC Irvine Med Center, Orange Campus but within the next 6 months
we should have automated whole breast ultrasound screening and high resolution
breast MRI. We have also asked the hospital to get us digital mammography
and CAD (computer-aided detection) for mammography.
