• Mayo Clinic Radio: Dense-Breast Imaging/Hospice Nursing/Medical History Book

It's well known that women with dense breast tissue are less likely to get accurate results from mammograms. Now there's a new breast-imaging technology called Molecular Breast Imaging, or MBI, that shows promise for increasing the rate of detection of invasive breast cancers in women with dense breasts. On the next Mayo Clinic Radio, Dr. Deborah Rhodes, Dr. Michael O'Connor and Dr. Katie Jones discuss MBI. Also on the program, nurses Margo Kroshus and Sherry Rengstorf share their advice and insights about hospice care. And cardiologist Dr. Bruce Fye talks about his new book, Caring for the Heart: Mayo Clinic and the Rise of Specialization.
