Almost three hundred thousand women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in the U.S. this year, and over 40,000 will die from the disease. An annual screening mammogram program has been shown to decrease breast cancer death in woman.
There is a newer technology which makes it easier to see even the smallest cancers. Radiologist Jon Ciambotti from Martha Jefferson Hospital explains how a breast MRI is just as important as the annual mammogram.
