Is is time for your mammogram?

A UTMB radiology technician prepares a patient for a mammogram.

As the director of breast imaging at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, I am often asked to give public talks during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

 Invariably, during the question-and-answer period, someone in the crowd timidly asks me to explain what exactly I do as a radiologist.
