The Anatomy of the Breast

Hosted by Lydia Liao, MD

Certain individuals are considered to be at higher risk for breast cancer, particularly if they have a history of the disease in their family.  Mammograms are an important tool in the detection of breast cancer.  The team at the Cooper Cancer Institute’s Janet Knowles Breast Cancer Center provide routine mammograms, full diagnostic breast studies, including ultrasound, and Mammotome Breast Biopsy - a minimally invasive procedure using sterotactic and ultrasound-guided technology for maximum accuracy.

If you have questions about mammography, breast cancer, or other related issues, Dr. Lydia Liao, Director of Women’s Imaging, will answer your questions.

Dr. Liao leads Cooper’s Breast Imaging Program. She joined Cooper University Hospital from the University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, N.Y., where she held the position of Director of Advanced Women’s Imaging in the Department of Radiology. Dr. Liao also served as Associate Director of the Highland Breast Center’s Imaging Section at Strong Memorial Hospital and Highland Hospital Women’s Health Center, Rochester, N.Y. and as an assistant professor of Radiology and Radiation Oncology at the University of Rochester. She completed a fellowship in Women’s Imaging at the University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada.
