Sorting out breast-screening guidelines and more: Essential Women’s Health Update

It’s so confusing! One report says “mammogram every year.” The next says maybe not.  During the last two years there has been a lot of discussion regarding breast screening.  Most commonly these topics include who should receive a mammogram, when and how often.   Some wonder if mammography is still the best option.

If you have had these questions, come to TMC’s Essential Women’s Health Update on Wednesday, Sept. 21 from 5 – 8 p.m. in TMC’s Marshall Conference Center.

Among other topics, Karen Narum, NP, TMC for Women, will clarify the breast screening guidelines as recommended by professional organizations such as The American Cancer Society, The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology,  and The American College of Radiology.  She will help you develop an understanding of how various imaging modalities are used in the examination of breast tissue and help you understand the steps to take if you notice a breast change.
