On Friday June 22nd at Tri City Medical Center Sue Glaze. a breast cancer survivor, and Dr. Kevin Kelly, SonoCiné inventor, will speak on how they’ll be using the brand new SonoCiné ultrasound breast cancer screening tool to save women’s lives by identifying cancer that can be missed by mammograms. SonoCiné is a lifesaver for women with dense breasts and implants, where it can detect cancers as small as 5 mm or the size of a lentil.
At least 40 percent of all women have dense breasts. Having dense breasts increases the chance that breast cancer may go undetected by a mammogram, since dense breast tissue can mask a potential cancer. SonoCiné takes ultrasound to the next level by picking up every single inch of a woman’s breast tissue— vastly increasing the odds of survival.
This completely donor funded equipment is brought to Tri-City Medical Center by the Tri-City Hospital Foundation.
Friday, June 22 – Noon to 1 p.m. – Tri-City Medical Center – Women’s Center 4002 Vista Way, Oceanside, CA 92056
