For women, breast cancer is the second most common form of cancer after skin cancer and the second-deadliest cancer after lung cancer. Breast cancer is likely to strike one in eight women in the United States. That is why breast cancer screening is so crucial for women’s health.
Breast imaging at Yale Medicine is performed by dedicated breast specialists and technologists who are specially trained, and the breast radiologists interpreting these studies are nationally recognized experts. “The whole idea of screening is to positively impact people’s lives and decrease mortality,” says Liane Philpotts MD, chief of breast imaging at Yale Medicine and professor of radiology & biomedical imaging at Yale School of Medicine.
