Deborah Rhodes and her colleagues at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota have created a molecular imaging system that can detect breast cancer for high-risk patients much more effectively than the traditional mammogram.  In her 2011 TEDXTALK, Rhodes explains why mammograms cannot detect benign tumors in all women and the politics that surround breast cancer. Think Dirty wishes Dr. Rhodes continual success in developing early detection of breast cancer for women!
