      Take-Away Points of the Presentation

      •Every major medical organization with demonstrated expertise in breast cancer care recommend that all women have yearly mammograms beginning at age 40 even though the US Preventive Task Services Breast Screening Recommendation is biennial mammogram age 50-74.
       
      •Whole breast ultrasound law goes into effect for women with dense breast tissue 1/1/15.
       
      •Dense breast tissue alone is not an indication for MRI.
       
      •Needle core biopsy and Breast conserving surgery with radiation therapy –gold standard.
       
      •Sentinel node biopsy-for clinically negative axilla.
