Breast cancer screening aims to catch breast abnormalities and cancers early, often before the onset of physical symptoms. There are many tools available including mammography, ultrasound, and MRI as well as image-assisted biopsies. Depending on cancer risk, breast density, and other variables, a combination of these may be used to detect breast malignancies and guide cancer treatment. Additionally, in the United States, radiologists have fought to ensure access to screenings via healthcare policies and insurance coverage.

Guest: Geraldine McGinty, MD, diagnostic and interventional radiologist specializing in breast imaging and Senior Associate Dean for Clinical Affairs at Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital.

Host: John Leonard, MD, a leading hematologist and medical oncologist at Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital
