[Video] Dr. Elayne Arterbery: Breast Cancer Diagnostic Challenges

Posted by Provista Diagnostics on April 26, 2017

Dr. Elayne Arterbery, a radiation oncologist discusses the challenges that surround patients with abnormal imaging findings, as well as those further confounded by dense breast tissue. 

"One of the challenges for women that are faced with an abnormal mammogram is the timeframe to get additional imaging, ultrasound, [or] biopsy. There is a waiting period that you don't know whether or not you have a malignancy," says Dr. Arterbery.

We need to add complementary breast cancer diagnostic tool to the current standard-of-care imaging techniques. By doing so, we will improve the ability to identify biological cues in a woman's bloodstream that may be indicative of the presence or absence of breast cancer. Ground-breaking technologies in the form of a blood-based approach will help imaging rule-out breast cancer in women with abnormalities and dense breast tissue, while also aiding imaging to more accurately identify breast cancer, increasing the survival rate of the disease.
