On the December 22, 2013, edition of Cleveland Connection we talk about breast health and the latest breast cancer treatments. Host Katherine Boyd sits down with Dr. M. P. McNamara, Jr., Chief of Breast Imaging and Intervention at The MetroHealth System.
Regular screening and early detection of breast cancer lead to the best outcomes. That’s why the MetroHealth Breast Center recently opened its doors and offers a full range of advanced breast imaging and clinical care services. Conveniently located off I-71 at MetroHealth’s West 150th Health & Surgery Center in West Park, the Breast Center features a team of highly-trained breast radiologists, surgeons, oncologists, nurse practitioners and patient navigators who are integrated to provide personalized, patient-centered care.
The Center features Tomosynthesis mammography – a revolutionary 3D technology that reveals fine detail and makes it harder for abnormalities to hide – and MetroHealth is the first health system in the area to make this advanced technology available to all patients, across multiple point-of-care sites. The Breast Center in West Park is the core facility for complete breast care. Mammography services are also available at the following four locations throughout The MetroHealth System: Beachwood, Broadway, Middleburg Heights and MetroHealth Medical Center (main campus).
