Elastography Helps Doctors Detect Breast Cancer

Elastography is a new way doctors at Lexington Medical Center are working to figure out if a suspicious mass in a woman’s breast is cancer. Creating colorful images that look like doppler weather radar, the technology is an extra tool in the toolbox of cancer detection. Learn about it from Dr. Beth Siroty-Smith of Lexington Radiology Associates in this story from WIS-TV.

The Watchman Reduces Stroke Risk

May is Stroke Awareness Month. The Watchman is a new device that can dramatically reduce the risk of stroke in patients with a type of abnormal heart rhythm called atrial fibrillation (A-Fib). Patients with A-Fib have a higher risk of blood clots. Often, these clots form in the left atrial appendage of the heart. The clot can travel to the brain and cause a stroke. The Watchman works by closing off the appendage to prevent blood clots there.

Dr. William Brabham of Lexington Cardiology, a Lexington Medical Center practice, talked about The Watchman in this WIS-TV interview this week.
