Montreal 2014 - Early Detection Speech

Dr. Tabár recently presented as Guest Faculty at the VM Medical Center 20th Anniversary Breast Cancer Conference in Montréal, Quebec.

His recorded lecture explains the mechanism by which early detection and treatment affect the outcome of breast cancer. Successful mammography screening decreases the advanced cancer rate and leads to significantly decreased mortality from the disease.

The lecture discusses why early detection is not a controversial issue, it details topics such as over diagnosis, all cause mortality and declares that successful, high quality mammography screening is one of the major accomplishments in clinical cancer research during the past fifty years.

"I have listened three times and am crying! This is so needed. Thanks so much. This is the boost I so needed right now. Our numbers are falling and I have felt so discouraged by the administration at my hospital for not understanding the issues facing us. This is the sword of truth that only you are able to express for us. Many heartfelt thanks."
 - Dr. Sharon Helmer
