Research

Breast Imaging

Under the supervision of Dr. Abid Irshad, the breast division is actively involved with many research projects including the investigation of emerging technologies such as "dedicated breast CT scan”, Tomosynthesis (3-D mammography), and spectral mammography for the diagnosis of breast cancer. Additionally, several clinical studies are ongoing looking at various aspects of breast cancer risk and breast cancer diagnosis. The findings are presented at national society meetings and published in peer-reviewed journals.
