"Mammography saves lives." Read Dr. Darius Gilvydis' assessment of study that showed 30% reduction in breast cancer deaths with use of mammograms.
"Mammography saves lives - period." That's how Darius Gilvydis, MD, diagnostic radiologist with Naperville Radiologists and Medical Director of Breast Imaging at Edward Hospital, sums up the recently announced results of a Swedish mammography study.
The study, which lasted 29 years, showed the use of mammography screening reduced deaths from breast cancer by at least 30%, an even greater extent than previously believed.
"We have known for a long time that mammography saves women's lives," says Dr. Gilvydis. "The great news is that we learn mammography is an even more powerful diagnostic and lifesaving tool than we thought."
