New ‘Top Docs’ addresses breast cancer screening guidelines
The latest edition of the Medical Association of Georgia’s (MAG) ‘Top Docs’ show addresses breast cancer from several important perspectives – including the new screening guidelines and the accessibility of screening mammograms – and it features Catherine Zhang, M.D., who is a transitional year intern at Northside Hospital Gwinnett.
Dr. Zhang discusses…
– The latest on the breast cancer risk assessment guidelines
– Why African American women are a higher-risk population
– Why breast cancer risk assessment is important for younger women
– To what extent referring physicians are following the new guidelines
– How we can increase the breast cancer risk assessment screening rate
– Whether insurers cover mammograms for women who are under 40
– What lawmakers can do to make mammograms more accessible
– How COVID-19 has affected breast cancer screening
– What the average person can do to increase breast cancer screening
Dr. Zhang will be starting her diagnostic radiology residency at the University of Florida in Gainesville next year. The MAG member is recent graduate from the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University.
