Mammograms are a woman’s first line of defense against breast cancer. They detect nearly 9 in 10 cases in women who get screened. Join Linda Gordon, M.D., radiologist and Imaging Director at the
Carol Ann Read Breast Health Center, to learn more about the importance of early breast cancer detection and how the COVID-19 vaccine can play a role in mammogram readings.
We will discuss:
• The impact of COVID-19 on women and breast cancer detection.
• When to time mammograms and vaccine doses, and why the COVID-19 vaccine alters results for some women.
• New mammogram screening technology.
Linda Gordon, M.D., radiologist and Imaging Director at the Carol Ann Read Breast Health Center, joined the medical staff of Alta Bates Summit Medical Center in 2005. She developed the breast MRI program and has overseen many service upgrades including digital mammography, 3D tomography, 3D breast biopsy and most recently, contrast-enhanced mammography. A long- term Bay Area resident, Dr. Gordon received her medical degree at USC, where she also completed her internship, residency and fellowship, before returning home to the East Bay.
