Debbie works with Lexington Clinic physicians and radiologists to
identify patients with a higher risk of breast cancer. As a Breast
Health Nurse and High Risk Program Coordinator, Debbie utilizes
scientific models to perform risk assessments and calculate values
reflecting the individualized lifetime risk of developing breast
cancer. These results are used to make recommendations for additional
radiologic and genetic screenings per American Cancer Society and
National Comprehensive Cancer Network guidelines.
to the identification of high risk patients, Debbie tracks high risk
mammography and MRI screenings, re-evaluates patient high risk criteria
annually, provides counsel regarding mammography results and oversees
the radiological follow-up of all new established high risk patients.
To date, hundreds of high risk patients have been identified through the
Lexington Clinic High Risk program and are receiving guidance and
recommendations concerning their personal breast healthcare plan.
