Early signs of breast cancer are exposed in the screening much before the patient can feel it or display symptoms. Imaging has a vital role to play in the early detection of breast cancer considering the high mortality rate in the country.
WHO data says that nearly 2.3 million women were diagnosed with breast cancer in 2020. Globally, more than 685 000 people succumbed to breast cancer.
MedPiper Technologies and JournoMed in association with Indian Radiological and Imaging Association Kerala are conducting a “Radiology session on breast Imaging”. The event will be held on 8th March, Tuesday, 5 pm. Participants can join by registering for it here.
For more details, participants may contact Soumya T.S at email@example.com/9080078447. E-Certificates will be provided to all the participants.

The odds of survival of breast cancer patients increase drastically if the detection happens at an early stage. But the detection and survival also depend on other factors like quality of the test, frequency, and getting the right treatment.
In the event, participants will be able to learn in detail about the importance of breast imaging procedures, preparations before the procedure, benefits, and limitations. The webinar will also help in identifying the population at risk, symptoms, challenges, and available treatment options.
