Visualizing Early-stage Cancer: Meet CT Breast Imaging Physician Dr. Jaime Szarmach

 

Meet Dr. Jaime Szarmach, a fellowship-trained breast imager at Connecticut Breast Imaging in Danbury, Connecticut passionate about compassionate, patient-centered care for breast health.

Dr. Szarmach understands the anxiety patients face when deciding which healthcare facility they should go to for their breast imaging.  This is why she believes finding a facility with state-of-the-art services as well as a focus on the doctor-patient relationship is vital for the best possible care.

She advises patients to take a close look to make sure a facility has the proper equipment in place, or if they’re a center that has 3D mammography or tomosynthesis. She further advises patients to ask themselves, ‘who is reading the study, are they fellowship-trained?’ 

This is the amazing value of Connecticut Breast Imaging, as not only does the facility have the necessary equipment to visualize early-stage cancers, it is also staffed with professionals like Dr. Szarmach who are qualified experts in breast health.

In addition to medical school at New Jersey Medical School, Dr. Szarmach chose to enter a specialized fellowship in breast imaging, which includes breast MRI, breast ultrasound, mammography, breast biopsy, and armpit biopsy. Before coming to Connecticut Breast Imaging, she served as an assistant professor in the Department of Radiology for Breast Imaging at Yale School of Medicine.

Dr. Szarmach advises that when patients choose their breast imaging center, first check to make sure that if further medical procedures are needed, such as a breast biopsy, the center is able to facilitate it.

With COVID-19 still in effect today, many patients are choosing to avoid going into medical offices for fear of contracting the virus. This is another unfortunate side effect of the pandemic. Dr. Szarmach assures those who are concerned that it is safe to come in for your exams. Schedule your breast imaging exams now and make your health top priority.
