Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Oncology Volume 04, Issue 07: Breast Cancer and Genetics.

The goals of this program are to improve risk assessment and risk management of breast cancer. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Choose an appropriate model for assessing risk for breast cancer.
2. Determine which patients should undergo screening with magnetic resonance imaging of the breasts.
3. Identify patients who should be referred for genetic testing.
4. Counsel patients at high risk for breast cancer about prophylactic surgeries.
5. Select an appropriate management strategy for the prevention of breast cancer in high-risk individuals.

The original programs were presented by Banu Arun, MD, Director, Associate Professor, Breast Medical Oncology and Clinical Cancer Prevention, and Co-Director, Clinical Cancer Genetics, University of Texas, MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston.
