His pioneering research has laid the foundation for early detection through modern mammographic screening. As a clinician, he has applied his expertise to the interpretation of well over one million mammograms. 

A consummate educator, Dr. Tabár is responsible for the mentoring of tens of thousands of breast imagers, surgeons and pathologists worldwide. His influence is felt on every continent and there can be no doubt that his work as researcher and educator has saved the lives of hundreds of thousands of women.

As difficult as it may be to cite his greatest single accomplishment, his unceasing efforts to bring diverse medical specialties together to improve screening, diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer have profoundly influenced the current generation of physicians.

Dr. Tabár understands that future progress against breast cancer requires the integration of clinical research with the education of teams of professionals - an approach that makes compassionate and evidence-based patient care a priority.
