Mammograms are a woman's first line of defense against breast cancer. They detect nearly 9 in 10 cases of breast cancer in women who get screened. Join Linda Gordon, M.D., radiologist and imaging director at the Carol Ann Read Breast Health Center, to learn more about the importance of early breast cancer detection and how the COVID-19 vaccine can play a role in mammogram readings.
We will discuss:
• The impact of COVID-19 on women and breast cancer detection.
• When to time mammograms and vaccine doses, and why the COVID-19 vaccine alters results for some women.
• New mammogram screening technology.
