Women’s imaging network Mammosphere hosted its first #Mammochat Twitter Q&A last month, emphasizing the importance of communication between patients and healthcare providers.
Heather Greenwood, MD, of the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) department of radiology & biomedical imaging, took part in the conversation and wrote about it for the UCSF website.
“The series of chats is intended to help patients and healthcare professionals come together to discuss important topics, including women’s health, breast cancer, and patient engagement,” Greenwood wrote.
Greenwood said she, along with the other featured guests, all recommended annual screening mammography beginning at age 40. The Twitter conversation also covered such topics as how breast screening can be made easier for patients and the various resources available for patients who have been diagnosed with breast cancer.
