LMI's Women's Imaging

At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, elective medical procedures, including cancer screening, were largely put on hold to prioritize urgent needs and reduce the risk of the spread of COVID-19 in healthcare settings. However, one consequence of this has been a substantial decline in cancer screening over the past several months.

While putting off a mammogram for a few months, particularly if you are not experiencing symptoms, is probably OK, specialists warn about the potential dangers of going too long, let alone waiting until your next regularly scheduled exam.

We talked with Dr. Cathrine Keller of Lake Medical Imaging, at their new office in The Villages Brownwood town square, about the dangers of delay and also some new genetic testing coming, exclusively in Lake County, to LMI.
