I was very moved by what I experienced at the PGA Valspar Championship yesterday. People from all walks of life came together for an experience that was remarkably absent of political and social fighting.

Smiles were everywhere, laughter filled the air, and I witnessed numerous random acts of kindness. I watched high school parents working hard serving beer for tips all day to donate to their local high school. I watched thousands of people donate hard earned money to Habitat for Humanity. I saw people give up their seats and holding places for strangers in line. In short, I saw people taking care of each other.

Despite my experiences of the real tragedy that exists in this world and the tough work we still have to do to purge the bad eggs from our society, at least yesterday I was reminded of the goodness in human nature...and it gave me hope and filled my soul with joy.

This is great news from an article in Radiology Business!

New York, Texas, New Jersey, New Hampshire, and Maryland are introducing legislation to require coverage for Digital Breast Tomosynthesis aka DBT (better known as 3-D Mammograms).

Breast cancer screening is usually a non-partisan issue (yes, there is one!), and generally well received by legislators. I expect that in the future, 3-D mammograms will be covered across the board in the United States.

This is not a surprising result from this study originally published in Radiology.

There is no question that breast MRI is a very sensitive test for the detection of breast cancer...probably more sensitive than mammography in a lot of cases.

But it's significantly longer, requires an IV for contrast (newer techniques without contrast are being developed), and in the current system, and has a tendency to lead to more false positive biopsies (especially if not interpreted by a specially trained breast imaging radiologist who is an expert in breast MRI).

Overall however, all of these considerations are being appropriately addressed and I do believe that breast MRI is a very useful tool that is significantly underutilized (insurance hates paying for these and many doctors are understandably uncertain about how to best use this evolving technology).

In the future, however, there is no question in my mind that breast MRI will become part of the natural vocabulary in the educated patient and increasingly play a big role saving the women in our lives.

In healthcare, we are often so busy "treating" that we forget about "communicating" and it is my opinion that the healthcare community needs to significantly improve communication with patients.

One of the things that we are doing at MammoLink® is creating a newsletter to keep our patients, physicians, staff, and breast cancer community in general updated and informed.

We just finished creating our signup form for the newsletter this morning and made the forms available on twitter and Facebook. In the next few weeks, we will make them available on our website (mammolink.com) and other locations.

Our article was featured in the Digital Pathology Blog with insightful comments from Dr. Keith J. Kaplan. I do believe that the model (as the question was raised by Dr. Kaplan) will undoubtedly lead to more effective breast cancer detection than we have seen in the past. With some help from my colleagues in the academic community I hope we will be able to prove this.

I have been asked about the #MammoLink installation process, so I thought it would be useful to post a couple of actual photographs from a recent mammography unit installation demonstrating what the typical plans look like and what the patient room will look like as a unit is being installed. The full post is on Facebook.

MammoLink℠ is now officially MammoLink®!

Approximately 7 months ago we began the journey of obtaining registered trademark status for #MammoLink and we were notified earlier today that our request was officially granted by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

Mark Smiley (our attorney) and Mark Woodruff from the Concept Law Group were incredibly efficient, professional and a pleasure to work with. I am extremely grateful for their work.

Miranda and I were up late tonight working hard to create some final content and put some finishing touches on our website for #MammoLink which will be released soon. The soon to be released final product looks amazing. After researching several web design companies about 6 months ago we chose SEO Brand and we could not be happier with our decision. This company is professional, hard working, and VERY good at what they do. We are very grateful for what they have been able to accomplish this far. We cannot wait to reveal the site! There is a sneak peek of a screenshot on our MammoLink Company Facebook page.

This is an article I wrote for Southwest Florida Health and Wellness Magazine regarding Breast MRI. Breast MRI is an extremely powerful breast imaging tool that is useful for certain specific groups of women.

It's funny how life has a way of bringing you blessings in disguise. After a very "cold" introduction, this state has become very special to me and I look forward to a successful relationship and growth in the state helping Missourian patients and physicians.
