Westchester Plastic Surgeon on Breast Health and Mammograms After Augmentation

Dr. Neal Goldberg explains how to achieve the most accurate mammogram following breast augmentation; He also touches on the effect breast implants can have on breastfeeding

SCARSDALE, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 11/30/16 -- For women, breast health and whole health can be closely linked. Many women considering breast augmentation may wonder if this procedure will make it more difficult to monitor their well-being. Dr. Goldberg, a plastic surgeon in Westchester, says a number of his patients are curious whether breast implants will interfere with mammograms, reducing their accuracy. He says that this does not have to be the case, and that there are steps one can take to ensure the imaging tests are as effective as possible.

Mammograms are designed to aid physicians in evaluating breast tissue for signs of irregularities. Breast implants sometimes must be "moved out of the way" of the breast tissue to make this technique effective, Dr. Goldberg explains, and this can be done with additional imaging and technical expertise. He says patients should ask the scheduler if the facility is equipped to serve women with breast implants. The patient should also, he adds, ask for a radiologist with experience performing mammograms on breasts with implants. Dr. Goldberg says that there may be different methods used for silicone and saline implants, as well as for implants placed above and below the muscle.

Another common question Dr. Goldberg says women have is whether breast implants will interfere with the ability to breastfeed. Many pediatricians recommend breast milk as the preferred nutrition for infants, and Dr. Goldberg explains that patients considering breast augmentation want to ensure they can still nurse if they have children in the future. He says implants should not affect one's capacity to lactate; however, augmentation techniques that minimize damage to milk ducts are recommended. Dr. Goldberg suggests women should discuss their concerns and family-building plans with an experienced plastic surgeon to learn more.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Peter McCallum, Vice President of Datacenter Solutions at FalconStor, discussed using predictive analytics to mon...
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control.

Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions.

In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...
Regulatory requirements exist to promote the controlled sharing of information, while protecting the privacy and/or security of the information.

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, sha...
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
