Editor's e-Note
The old adage has it that life begins at 40. The personnel at Solis Mammography, in conjunction with the Society of Breast Imaging, want women to remember this age is a turning point in the fight against breast cancer as well.

Early detection leads to a survival rate of close to 100%. Getting screened early is the best way women can protect themselves; radiologists can keep up to date with the latest numbers in this month’s E-News Exclusive.

Four Compelling Reasons to Start Annual Mammograms at Age 40

Turning 40 is a benchmark birthday for many women in the United States. While a pessimist might view it as a signal that their glory days are over, more and more women are optimistic about the milestone, seeing it as a kickoff into the best years of their lives. But one thing is true for all women: Health needs and preventive wellness routines should begin to change at age 40.

“For some women, they have health history or specific reasons to begin mammography before age 40. But for the average woman who has never had a breast screening, we recommend she begin a routine annual wellness mammogram starting at age 40,” says Stephen Rose, MD, CMO of Solis Mammography. “Simply put, women in their 40s have the most to gain from being proactive about early detection. Major studies have shown time and again that, in addition to saving lives, early detection offers greater quality of life, as treatment at earlier stages is less invasive and less costly.”

3D Printing Applications and Workflows:
Insights from the Top Ranked US Hospital

The growing use of 3D printing in health care presents unprecedented potential for radiology departments. In this webinar, Dr. Jonathan Morris, codirector of the Anatomic Modeling Laboratory and Neuroradiologist at the Mayo Clinic, will share the history of 3D printing in medicine, and examine real-world case studies of how radiologists have successfully introduced 3D printing capabilities and programs into hospitals. Dr. Morris will walk through the complete workflow for producing 3D printed anatomical models from patient scans, and how any radiologist can implement a low-cost 3D printing operation, from software to setup. After Dr. Morris’ presentation, Amy Alexander, biomedical engineer in the Anatomic Modeling Lab at Mayo Clinic, will answer your questions on how to implement this new workflow in your institution.

Worth Repeating
“When our stomachs are empty, the body senses this and switches to food-seeking survival mode. We're not trying to eliminate this biological response, only reduce the strength of this signal to the brain to provide a new, sustainable solution to the difficult problem of treating mild obesity.”

David Prologo, MD, FSIR, ABOM-D, of Emory University School of Medicine, on research showing that an interventional radiologist can, with the help of live images streamed from a CT scan, inject argon gas into a patient’s back, freezing the nerve that transports hunger signals to the brain
