Bo­som Bud­dies do­nates to Breast Cen­ter

Record Observer - - News -

EAS­TON — Bo­som Bud­dies Char­i­ties Inc. re­cently pre­sented the Clark Com­pre­hen­sive Breast Cen­ter at Univer­sity of Mary­land Shore Re­gional Health with the sec­ond in­stall­ment of their $62,700 pledge for the pur­chase of up­graded equip­ment re­lated to 3D mam­mog­ra­phy.

When the cen­ter started us­ing 3D mam­mog­ra­phy, physi­cians and ra­di­ol­o­gist were able to see more de­fin­i­tive ar­eas of con­cern in the breast more clearly. How­ever, the scale and size of these find­ings made it very dif­fi­cult to see them on the cur­rent stereo imag­ing grid, as it is over 10 years old. Up­graded equip­ment would in­clude a new cam­era, soft­ware, au­to­gu­ide, ta­ble top pad and lat­eral probe guide that would al­low the clin­i­cal staff to im­prove vi­su­al­iza­tion of these smaller le­sions and pro­vide bet­ter di­ag­no­sis for pa­tients.

The Clark Com­pre­hen­sive Breast Cen­ter pro­vides ser­vices for breast can­cer di­ag­no­sis, treat­ment and sup­port en­abling women to make in­formed de­ci­sions about their care and treat­ment plan when faced with this di­ag­no­sis.

Bo­som Bud­dies Char­i­ties, a non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tion, was es­tab­lished in Queen Anne’s by Su­san Pon­chok and is now chaired by Biana Arentz. The group has do­nated over $1.5 mil­lion in the past 11 years to pro­mote breast can­cer aware­ness, en­cour­age early de­tec­tion, sup­port treat­ment and cel­e­brate heal­ing.
