Breast cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer deaths among women. In order to help with early detection, Dr. Carolyn G. Dudley at DIAGNOSTIC RADIOLOGY ULTRASOUND & BREAST CENTER, PC now offers lower dose 3D digital mammography (breast tomosynthesis).

This innovative service is an imaging procedure that uses lower dose x-rays to create a 3D image of the breasts. Conventional mammography takes pictures of the breast from two angles — up and down, and left and right — but tomosynthesis takes multiple pictures from several angles. This enables Dr. Dudley to visualize thin slice images of the breast tissue. Benefits include earlier detection of small cancers, precise treatments initiated sooner and fewer repeat images. Dr. Dudley’s lower dose 3D digital mammography unit is the latest, state-of-the-art technology in breast imaging. It is ideal for those women who are breast cancer survivors, are at high risk for breast cancer, have a family history of breast cancer, have had several false-positive mammograms, or just looking for an annual preventive mammogram.

The last decade has seen many advances in the field of surgery. Even more rapidly have been the advances and expanded applications of minimally invasive surgery. The introduction of the da Vinci® robot has increased patient accessibility to advanced laparoscopic surgery. Director of Robotic Urologic Surgery Dr. Raymond Pak, in addition to his colleagues Drs. Jaime Wong & Spencer Kozinn at THE JENKINS CLINIC, are expert urologists who are trained in advanced laparoscopic & robotic surgery. They are some of the most experienced urologic robotic surgeons in Metro Atlanta, performing hundreds of successful operations. Robotic (da Vinci®) prostatectomy is a minimally invasive alternative for treatment of localized prostate cancer.

The da Vinci® robot couples the magnified 3D high-definition optics of the robotic camera with the increased control and dexterity of the robotic instruments. This allows for a precise cancer operation through smaller incisions with meticulous preservation of normal tissue with less pain & blood loss. All of these promote better & more rapid return of potency and urinary continence. Drs. Pak, Wong & Kozinn also use this same technique for kidney & bladder cancer surgeries.
