There are many interlocking financial conflicts of interest between Big Pharma and medical institutions. Many members of major medical groups, universities, and medical journals also have financial ties with pharmaceutical companies. Whats safer than mammography? What can cure muscle cramps?
Special Guest Host, Michele J. Rolle, is a Chief Mammography Technologist at a prominent Obstetrics and Gynecology practice, which she has represented in television, radio and print interviews. She has been compassionately educating women about breast health for more than 25 years. Michele has recently debuted her memoir, Invisible Warrior, an inspiring narrative that lays bare the struggles of her youth in the New York City projects and follows her into a triumphant adulthood.
Michele will be interviewing Kelly Hickok, who served eight years on the Virginia Board for People with Disabilities and currently sits on the Community Integration Advisory Commission to provide input to the Governor on issues impacting the lives of individuals with disabilities. Kelly is also a member of the elite National ADA Leadership Network. After spending 20 years as an architectural consultant relating to Accessibility and the ADA, Kelly is now the Community Services Manager for Resources for Independent Living.

Dr. Len Brancewicz of www.TheNutritionShoppe.net discusses today's health topics from a natural and traditional perspective.
Today's show focuses on thermography, an FDA approved alternative to mammography. Dr. Liz Gregg of the American Institute of Thermography and Diagnostics joins Dr. Len to discuss breast health, injury rehab, heart disease and so much more. Tune in and learn about this amazing technology.
Thermography is a valuable diagnostic tool that is safe, painless and easy!
Guest: Carol Conti. A pioneer in the field of mammography for over 30 years, Carol brings a wealth of information to the table. However, diagosed herself with breast cancer last year, shook Carol into a massive revelation about mammography. Today, an active thermography technician, find out why Carol is a strong proponent of thermography!
In the U.S., when we ask about radiation in medical imaging, we are usually just told not to worry about it. “It’s less radiation than you get flying across the Atlantic.” “The benefits of imaging outweigh the risks.”
All that is true, and yet, we can’t helping worrying a bit.
There are people in the world who take this question very seriously, none more than Dr. Madan Rehani, Director of Radiation Protection at the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna, Austria. Dr. Rehani and his colleagues have studied the use of radiation in medicine worldwide and are working to optimize its use.
In this interview, Joyce speaks with Dr. Rehani about radiation in medical imaging.
Medical imaging that uses ionizing radiation include Computed Tomography (CT), Mammography, and Fluoroscopy. The first question to ask is: is this the best type of imaging test to use to answer the medical question? Or might another modality that does not use ionizing radiation (such as MRI or Ultrasound) be used instead? Often MRI or Ultrasound will do the job just as well. But there are circumstances where CT is in fact needed:
Dr Rehani talks about the recent advances in standardizing the terminology and calculations used by the various manufacturers of CT machines.
CT dose index (CTDI)
Dose Length Product (DLP)
giving us standard measures of the radiation delivered to the patient.

The first recorded use of thermobiological diagnostics can be found in the writings of Hippocrates around 480-b.c, and on January 29, 1982, the Food and Drug Administration published its approval and classification of thermography as an adjunctive diagnostic screening procedure for the detection of breast cancer. Since the late 1970s, numerous medical centers and independent clinics like ours have used thermography for a variety of diagnostic purposes. Tune in Wednesday December 7, 2011 to the Aging Younger radio show for a review of the breast screening and full body diagnostics which we offer our clients.

Join Change Your Mind! Transformational Dialogue Radio host, Dr Craig Weiner, DC as he explores a leading edge of science and health with Dr. Thornton Streeter. Since 1998, Dr. Streeter and the Centre for Biofield Sciences have investigated the efficacy of integrative medicine modalities and devices that explores the interface of health; where the physical body and the subtler energy systems of the body interface. The ability to measure and interpret subtle systems of the body, ie meridians, chakra systems, vibrational and electromagnetic fields, hold significant potential to eradicate diseases in their nascent stages of development. His vision of a health care system includes allopathic interventions beside systems such as Ayurveda, homeopathy, chiropractic, energy healing modalities (be it EFT, Reiki, Therapeutic Touch etc) and more, that can use affordable technologies to prevent suffering around the world. The idea that disease begins at a subtler degree than Western Medicine acknowldedges (think the safe use of thermography for earlier detection of breast cancer than mammography) is an idea Dr Streeter is passionate about making widely known. He continues to support clinical trials worldwide on a wide array of emerging technologies including the Biofield Viewer. For further information go to http://www.biofieldsciences.com/ or the Energy Medicine Exchange on Facebook.

Diane Lorusso, M.D., of Rye Radiology speaks to the eficacy of FDA approved 3D mammography, known as breast tomosynthesis. 3D gigital imaging only takes 10 seconds and finds 40% more invasive breast cancers than traditional 2D mammography alone (with lessfalse positives). Dr. Lorusso joins the show as our guest at 11 a.m. In the first hour, host Hezi Aris speaks to the issues divulged at the Legislation and Codes Committee agenda conducted late Tuesday afternoon, among other revelations from Monday and Tuesday on Wednesday, April 24th, from 10 a.m. to 12 Noon.

In response to an astonishing study in the news indicating rampant over-diagnosis and over-treatment of 1.3 million U.S. women whose early stage breast cancers were identified through 30 years of screening mammograms, host Susan Larison Danz will review the latest news from multiple sources and reflect upon how it could lead to empowering women to make their own informed choices about mammography.
Wellness Coach Edie Summers, host of the Blog Talk Radio show The Wellness Coach, makes a spontaneous appearance later in the show to talk with Susan about this important topic.
Read Susan's latest blog entry on the topic here, an editorial including links to the original report on the study in the New England Journal of Medicine and to numerous news stories:

Breast Cancer Awareness Month begins in October. We decided to get a jump on the annual observance by inviting breast imaging specialist and director of the Dorothy G. Hoefer Comprehensive Breast Center Dr. Kelly Allison and cancer patient navigator Wendi Johnson from Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical Center on the next edition of Sentara Today on Blog Talk Radio. Part two of the discussion will air on September 27. Stay tuned for details.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In our second part of the series on breast cancer diagnosis and treatment, join us as we discuss breast cancer treatment options with Dr. Heidi Rafferty, breast surgeon at Rockingham Memorial Hospital. Also joining the panel is Dr. David Weintritt, a breast surgeon who practices at Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center. He has specializes in minimally invasive breast procedures, genetic testing and partial breast radiation. Dr. Weintritt is the PI for a very exciting launch at Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center. Xoft Intra Operative Radiation Therapy is being introduced to the Washington DC region offering patients a one day breast cancer radiation treatment with this technology. Ms. Lisa Bowles, manager of Sentara's Dorothy G. Hoefer Comprehensive Breast Center on the Peninsula, will discuss Radiation Seed Localization and her recent missions trip to India where she shared information to help teach mammography and bone density protocols and practices. Rounding out our panel is CIndi Willoughby, breast cancer patient navigator at Sentara Princess Anne Hospital. You don't want to miss this episode!
