In honor of October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, this episode is dedicated to educating our listeners about the latest diagnostic tools available for breast cancer screening. Today’s guest, Dr. Peter Eisenberg, a diagnostic radiologist, talks about the importance of getting screened regularly as well as the advantages of a 3D mammography (tomosynthesis) by demonstrating this with a loaf of sliced bread! Before we get to him, our coffee chat brings parents news they can use about the drop in breast cancer death rates and the “Angelina Jolie Effect” on breast cancer prevention.
