What Your Doctor Isn’t Telling You About Your Breasts
Friday, February 10 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm Room: Newport B
Chiqeeta Jameson was the Director of Women’s Health Advocacy for SonoCiné, Inc., an automated whole breast ultrasound (AWBUS) technology designed to find, in women with dense-breast tissue and/or implants, small invasive breast cancer that is missed by mammography. She knows exactly why she had breast cancer; to educate as many women as possible about their breast density and that an Automated Whole Breast Ultrasound (AWBUS) can give them peace of mind beyond their mammogram. Did you know that there is a Breast Density Inform law that mandates that after every mammogram, a woman with dense-breast tissue must be notified that mammography is not enough of an exam for her tissue type? She is instructed to talk with her doctor about what additional exam may be right for her such as breast ultrasound or MRI to detect what mammography may have missed.
Because she is known for traveling the country, giving talks about this message, she was asked to create a TEDx Talk on this subject, If You're Dense, You Need To Be Smart , for Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. Come hear what Chiqeeta has to say. Her information is clinically sound, extremely informative and what every woman needs to know, especially if she doesn’t hear it from her doctor. There’s a reason you are reading this bio. Perhaps you or someone you love, needs to know this information. Come, be informed, save a life. If could be your own.
