Education and Research
Residents rotating in the mammography section, ultrasound and interventional sections gain exposure in breast imaging. There are plans underway to have a comprehensive breast clinic where all these services are offered in one section allowing for better patient care and integrated learning for the residents.
The breast imaging section has conducted a number of research projects at dissertation level, and through both local and international multidisciplinary collaboration.
