As a breast imaging doctor, Dr. Elizabeth Morris interprets radiology images such as mammography (including 3D tomosynthesis and contrast-enhanced mammography), breast ultrasound, and breast MRI (including abbreviated MRI). She also does breast biopsies with imaging guidance. She and her team have pioneered high-risk screening with MRI and offer personalized screening to women with average risk as well as those who may have a high-risk gene,such as BRCA1 or BRCA2. Her research focuses on how best to use newer techniques to detect breast cancer early and to assess whether treatment is working.
“We need to do better. We certainly recognize that and we need to realize not every person is the same.”– Dr. Elizabeth Morris on breast cancer screening options
