Breast ultrasound from the patient’s perspective

By Dr Kamilia Kozlowski, October 2017, DI EUROPE

Knowing that modern mammography can miss cancer in dense breast tissue, my colleagues and I at the Knoxville Comprehensive Breast Center have been performing ultrasound screening since 1983 for dense breasts and indeterminate mammographic clinical findings.

Currently in the United States, more than half of the individual states have passed legislation which requires radiologists to inform women if it is found that they have dense breasts.

Hepatitis C is appropriately recognized as a serious liver disease with significant morbidity and mortality. Although it may manifest as an acute infection, roughly 75% of cases progress to a chronic disease that often requires tremendous use of healthcare resources for management and treatment.
The use of ShearWave Elastography, on the other hand, allows us to enter patients into hepatitis C management during the encounter when the diagnosis was made instead of referring them for a biopsy or second appointment. Patients can be diagnosed and begin the treatment phase in the same medical home, thus reducing the potential for loss to follow up within an indigent and sometimes transitory population.
