Texas Health Dallas on WFAA-TV

Dr. Lee Bourland, an oncology breast surgeon on the medical staff at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas, and Dr. Shannon Amonette, a radiologist on the medical staff at Texas Health Dallas, were featured in a special report on WFAA-TV (Channel 8). The story details a clinical trial at Texas Health Dallas to determine whether tomosynthesis, a new breast-imaging technology, is as effective as MRI in helping diagnosing breast cancer. Tomosynthesis, which provides 3D images of breast tissue as quickly and easily as undergoing a traditional mammogram, is available only through enrollment in the Texas Health Dallas clinical trial or at one of a handful of medical centers around the country conducting similar research. Experts say the study may determine if 3D mammography could one day be used as a routine screening tool for women with dense breast tissue, which can hide cancerous growths.
