BestMedicine: Breast Screening Technologies

    Reno, NV - Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in women in the U.S. That’s why raising awareness is so important. Next Wednesday, Renown Institute for Cancer and Wolf Pack Basketball are hosting a Pink Out to raise awareness surrounding breast cancer.

    Of course, early detection is another big piece. Dr. Susan Ward, a radiologist who specializes in breast imaging, is here to talk about what you need to watch for and how new technology can help you spot it sooner.


    First, when should women start getting breast exams?

    What are the risk factors for breast cancer? Are there any preventive steps women can take?

    There are a lot of newer screenings out today. Tell us about the difference between 2-D and 3-D mammography?

    And what about a whole breast ultrasound. What is that?
