Dr. Constance Lehman is the director of imaging at SCCA. In this video she encourages early detection of breast cancer using mammograms.
One thing we know is that if we can detect breast cancer early, we can cure it. This is done through aggressive screening using mammography. The challenge we face at SCCA is education and getting every woman to screen for early detection. We have a mobile program in the community and our combined screening and diagnostic mammography program at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. Every mammogram is digitally performed by an expert technologist and interpreted by an expert radiologist. Early detection is the key to successfully curing breast cancer.
