Pediatric Radiology at RadNet

Pediatric Radiology at RadNet

Pediatric Radiology with Dr. Liliane Gibbs
Millions of people throughout the country receive radiology exams every year. They’re an essential tool in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases such as heart disease, cancer, dementia, as well as physical injuries such as bone fractures and dislocations. When most people think of radiology, they think of MRIs, CT scans, Ultrasound and X-rays being performed on adults, but they forget that children also develop diseases that require radiologic imaging methods. It may seem like taking an X-ray of a child would be same as taking an X-ray of an adult, but […]

USPSTF Recommendations Ignore Realities of Breast Cancer

Annual mammogram screening beginning at age 40 saves lives. U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends less frequent screening at a later age, not because screening will not save lives, but because it will not save sufficient numbers of lives when started before age 50.

The guidelines are based on outdated, blemished data and do not evaluate cost-effectiveness or any other benefits of early detection. In fact, USPSTF states, “Screening mammography in women ages 40 to 49 years may reduce the risk of dying of breast cancer, but the number of deaths averted is much smaller than in older women and […]

Women’s Imaging Centers Will Operate Under Breastlink Name

For more than 15 years, breast imaging specialists of West Coast Radiology have worked with referring physicians of Orange County to provide comprehensive breast imaging services through a network of dedicated women’s imaging centers. As of April 1, 2015, the dedicated women’s imaging centers where these radiologists work will be rebranded as Breastlink Women’s Imaging Centers.

The current team of expert breast imaging specialists working out of these locations will continue interpreting women’s imaging exams performed at these centers, with the added benefit of being able to work more closely with Breastlink’s multidisciplinary team of breast cancer experts.

Researchers Investigate 3D Mammography Cost-Effectiveness

Early research has shown that 3D mammography can improve breast cancer detection rates and reduce false-positive rates. In women with dense breast tissue, which can mask cancers on conventional mammography, 3D mammography is emerging as a valuable supplemental screening tool.
Is 3D Mammography Cost Effective?
Recent research published in Radiology concluded that 3D mammography is a cost-effective way to screen for cancer in women with dense breast tissue. Using data collected from the National Cancer Institute and Medicare, researchers from the University of Washington and the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance attempted to calculate the cost per quality-adjusted life year (QALY) added […]

Informing Women About the Benefits of a Mammogram Exam

Despite large-scale campaigns to publicize the importance of breast cancer screening, a lot of faulty information regarding the mammogram exam is still being delivered to patients and sometimes interpreted as fact.

To gauge where gaps in knowledge about breast cancer screening are most commonly occurring, the Working Mother Research Institute recently surveyed more than 2,500 women aged 35 and older to see what they know. While the results contain good news, there are areas where physicians can better educate their patients.
Most Women Have Been Screened
Fortunately, many women are well aware of the importance of screening. A majority of women (80 […]

MRI Screening for Ruptured Breast Implant

Breast implants are one of the more commonly performed plastic surgery procedures in the United States. More than 285,000 women received breast implants in 2014. Although it has been clearly demonstrated that ruptured implants do not cause harm, women should consider potential complications when making the personal decision to have breast implants. A ruptured breast implant is one such risk.
What is a Ruptured Breast Implant?
A breast implant rupture occurs when a breast implant breaks. When a saline breast implant ruptures, it is usually noticeable right away because the saline tends to leak quickly. Saline that leaks into the body will […]
