OWM INTEGRATIVE WELLNESS FOUNDER, DR. LEONARD KAPLAN, TO PROVIDE FREE LECTURE ON BENEFITS OF NEW BREAST CANCER SCREENING TECHNOLOGY – AUTOMATED WHOLE BREAST ULTRASOUND
For those interested in breast health, Dr. Leonard Kaplan, Founder of OWM Integrative Wellness, will present a free lecture on Wednesday, April 12th from 6-7pm at the Trocaire Achievement Center at 6691 Transit Road, in Williamsville (behind Russells), titled “What You Should Know About SonoCine, an Automated Whole Breast Ultrasound (AWBUS).” This lecture will highlight how this computerized FDA approved technology, which is not offered anywhere else in the region, is changing the landscape of early breast cancer detection.
Leonard Kaplan, DO, founder of OWM Integrative Wellness (OWM), feels women should be well informed about the limitations of mammograms. Most women are not educated on the risk categories that can camouflage cancer and make women 4-6 times more likely to develop breast cancer. Dr. Kaplan states, “Here at OWM, we are committed to prevention and we are very excited to be the only facility east of Chicago to offer the computerized visualization of AWBUS, which has proven to detect cancers as small as 3mm, when they are most easily treated.”
Trained as a fellow at the Metabolic Terrain Institute in the Metabolic Approach to Cancer, Dr. Leonard Kaplan discovered that AWBUS provided reassurances that don’t exist with today’s conventional mammograms or breast ultrasound. The conventional ultrasound is more operator dependent, hence allowing for human error and possible inconsistency. Strikingly, unlike a mammogram, AWBUS has the ability to scan the entire breast tissue including the under arm and lymph nodes, sternum and clavicular areas. OWM Integrative Wellness is proud to be the first in the area to offer this technology.
“The AWBUS screening device uses an automated computer-controlled arm to guide the transducer and capture thousands of images in rows, reducing manual error while it increases the visibility of cancers that may be hidden,” says Dr. Kaplan. Patients don’t experience any uncomfortable compression or have exposure to radiation from mammography x-rays, a welcome change for anyone familiar with having a mammogram.
AWBUS is FDA approved as an adjunct to mammography, however OWM Integrative Wellness does not require a mammogram for women to receive an ultrasound screening. Dr. Kaplan describes AWBUS as a revolutionary prevention intervention and wants women to understand why this is such an important tool for those who value breast health.
