Areas of interest

Mammography, breast ultrasound, tissue sampling prcedures of the breast under ultrasound, 2D or 3D mammographic guidance. Main research topic – breast density.


For instance, some women might undergo a modified exposure exam at age 35 to establish breast density levels, Dr. Perry noted. Those with denser breast tissue could then be followed more closely with mammography and additional imaging like MRI or ultrasound for earlier cancer detection and treatment.
