BestMedicine: The Importance of Breast Screenings



    Reno, NV - Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among women in the U.S. The good news is that Routine screening for breast cancer lowers one's risk of dying of breast cancer. Dr. Julie Locken of Renown Health Imaging joins me to talk more about breast screenings.

    Questions:

    * When scheduling a mammogram, people are often asked to provide “priors.” What are prior images and why are they important?

    * We’ve been hearing a lot about dense breast tissue lately. How would a woman know if she has dense breast tissue?

    * If a woman with dense breast tissue opts for a whole breast ultrasound, does she need to have a traditional mammogram as well?
