    Lunch & Learn: 3 D Mammography 
    Newer, three-dimensional mammograms may be better at picking up invasive tumors and avoiding false alarms than traditional breast cancer screening methods, a study of 13 U.S. hospitals suggests. Researchers found that 3 D mammography, used along with standard digital mammograms, bumped up breast cancer detection rates by more than 40 percent. Enjoy a free healthy lunch when you join Wake Forest Baptist Health radiologist Dr. Margaret Yacobozzi to learn more about the benefits of 3 D mammography. Register now.

    Ovarian Cancer: What's Important to Know? 3 D Mammography
    Cancer of the ovary is not common, but it causes more deaths than other female reproductive cancers. It is sometimes referred to as a "silent disease" because in early stages symptoms can be vague or non-specific. The sooner ovarian cancer is found and treated, the better chance for recovery. Join Wake Forest Baptist Health gynecological oncologist Dr. Samuel Lentz to learn more about prevention and treatment. Register now.
