Do you have a question about pregnancy? The early symptoms of menopause? The best age to start getting mammograms?
The audience will lead the direction of the talk, said Kim Rosenberger, executive assistant to the medical group. “It will be an open mic QA on the issues important to the audience. We thought this would be the best route to take since the age range of attendees could be broad.”
The panel will consist of one or more physicians from Premier Women’s Health, along with Dana Crow, registered nurse. Crow graduated from CCAC North in 2014 as an RN; she also has an associate’s degree in science. She has been working at Premier Women’s Health since graduation.
No topic is off limits for the panel, said Rosenberger.
The Sewickley office of Premier Women’s Health includes Diagnostic Imaging of Sewickley, which now offers digital mammography. The 3-D technology produces images with better visibility of the entire breast, with improved contrast between dense and non-dense breast tissue.
With the new technology, exams take less time. The process allows physicians the ability to pinpoint suspicious findings and tumor masses more accurately, making early detection of breast cancer possible. It also cuts down on “false positive” readings that can cause anxiety for patients waiting for results.
The imaging services have expanded to include men as well as women and teens. Diagnostic Imaging of Sewickley performs vascular, thyroid, and general abdominal ultrasound in addition to mammography and bone density studies.
As presenting sponsor, Premier Women’s Health and Diagnostic Imaging of Sewickley will both have tables at the expo. They will be located at the top of each staircase as guests enter the exhibit hall.
The medical staff from Premier Women’s Health, with offices in Sewickley and Moon Township, will present “Ask an OB/GYN” on Feb. 16 at The Times Women’s Expo at The Willows Event Center in Industry. [Submitted]
