Nurse DEBI CAVOLO shares some of the top health disorders in women based on her research and professional experience! "Putting ourselves first is not a luxury- but a health and wellness necessity!" states DR. ARTEMIS MORRIS, Naturopathic Physician. DR. OSAMA KANDALAFT addresses the evolution in the medical community about underserved communities (including women).

Why support a Diagnostic-Based Network?
Though our professional group is certainly about a wide range of health resources and the collaboration of all types of professionals working on women's issues, a DIAGNOSTIC-based collective ensures a patient-dedicated road map and a more thoughtful health analysis and research-based evaluation. It is this commitment to a deeper sense of examination of the patient that lends itself to a more holistic and integrative strategy to therapeutics. It is also this philosophy that draws more intuitive and insightful clinicians to collaborate and share insights on a patient's disorder with compassion and genuine care. (See "The Future in Personalized Medicine")

Heart Disease is the #1 Killer of Women
According to the CDC, despite an increase in awareness over the past decades, only about half (56%) of women recognize that heart disease is their number 1 killer. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for women in the United States, killing 301,280 women in 2019—or about 1 in every 5 female deaths. We unite a network of clinical researchers, women's advocates and support groups to promote educational awareness about this national health alert.

Innovations in Stress Incontinence:
Anywhere from 26-40% of women are recorded to suffer from incontinence. Therapeutic experts and innovators find that the vast majority not know that there are treatment options and they resign themselves to a life of pads or diapers (and emotional challenges). A united alliance of global experts share valuable information about the current state of solutions about the various types of incontinence- including postpartum/stress incontinence. (see our feature article)

Reducing False Negative Readings of Cancer-Linked Dense Breasts
The medical community is now recognizing the link between dense breast tissue to the risk of breast cancer. This tissue type shows as a white cloud on a mammogram, cloaking a white tumor on a mammogram. As mammography prevails as the standard early detection screening test for breast cancer, the need for SUPPLEMENTAL SCANNING (with devices like an ultrasound) offers supportive detection of potential tumors that may be concealed by dense breast tissue under a mammogram. (see our feature article)

Diagnosing Female Incontinence through Imaging (4.5min)
A diagnosis is defined as the process of accurately and quantitatively determining health status, disorder or a diseased condition. One of various diagnostic options in modern medical science is through the use of imaging. Though this video narrated by Dr. Bard (resident imaging interpretation expert), we are able to visualize and better understand the physiology of Stress Incontinence- a popular postpartum disorder in women.

Additional material on this topic are available in Dr. Bobbi Kline's feature on "Health & Healing 101"

Editorial Feature: UNDERDIAGNOSED WOMEN (4.5min)
Historically, there is substantial evidence of gross disregard and dismissive response on the part of the medical establishment in the way women have been diagnosed. Critics have speculated everything from professional carelessness to blatant sexism (and other forms of discrimination) to a lack of updated education in current research. This compelling report starts with the landmark story of the legendary comedienne, Gilda Radner who died of ovarian cancer remission in 1989, then to the treatment complications of Nancy Cappello whose false negative mammography reports led to a fatal, late stage breast cancer(2018). Their stories remain as life-saving references about early detection. (see complete article)


What can Pelvic Floor Ultrasound do for the clinician?
Ultrasound has been used in the investigation of pelvic floor disorders since the 1980’s, not that long after its introduction into other gynaecological subspecialties such as Reproductive Endocrinology and Gyn. Oncology. Progress in our field however has been much slower, and this deserves comment. Delays in the uptake of the new modality were partly due to the relative immaturity of urogynecology as a subspecialty, partly due to the fundamentally different way in which ultrasound was utilised in clinical practice.

Three Staging Options for Advanced Digital Breast Imaging
Advanced sonogram technology provides accurate use of sound waves to produce real-time images of the inside of the body. It is used as a complement to find anomalies and help diagnose the causes of pain, swelling and infection in the body’s internal organs while allowing the diagnostician the ability to zoom and ‘travel’ deep into the body for maximum exploration. Digital Imaging technology is also used to help guide biopsies and in many cases, even replicate much of the same reports of a clinical invasive biopsy. Imaging solutions such as high-powered Sonograms, Spectral Doppler, sonofluoroscopy, 3D/4D Image Reconstruction and the Spectral Doppler are safe, noninvasive, and does not use ionizing radiation. They also have the ability to provide early detection scans. ** Three STAGING OPTIONS are available depending on the patient’s current needs- to be discussed with practitioner prior to or during examination.

Option 1
Option 2
Option 3
Typically performed for patients either self-identifying anomalies (bumps) for the first time and/or are seeking a second opinion + may have a family history of breast cancer (or other related cancers related to the breast)
This option scans the breast and the shoulder through which vessels and nerves enter and leave the upper arm; a person's armpit. This option is recommended for anyone who may be currently Undergoing cancer treatment... also anyone who has recently (prior to 5 years) undergone a mastectomy since it detects unsuspected metastatic disease

For a patient who is at high risk for developing a cancer or requires advanced confirmation of a current tumor treatment protocol since the 3D/4D computer analysis verifies the success of the therapy in a quantitative analysis by the unique Doppler histogram technology

Technology applied:

SONOGRAM: Seek subdermal masses, breast lumps, tumor growths, fluid-filled cysts, nodes or hematoma. Sonography can be performed in multiple scan planes with real time 3-D image analysis with power and spectral Doppler flows.
SONOFLUOROSCOPY: of intra/subdermal soft tissues is to be performed in multiple scan planes with varying transducer frequencies.
3D/4D IMAGE RECONSTRUCTION: For any lesions that are homogeneous echogenic and well marginated on 3D and 4D computer histogram analysis.
SPECTRAL DOPPLER: Search for hyperemia of any lesions. Power Doppler will show normal flows in the adjacent arteries/veins. Spectral flows will show normal tri-phasic waveforms. Search for any peripheral lesion abnormalities or focal vascularity.

The current standard in screening for breast cancer is mammography. However, this imaging tool misses some breast tumors, especially in women with dense breasts. Published data suggests that sonography can play an important role in detecting tumors that mammography misses. In fact, over 94% of cancers seen only on ultrasound were invasive tumors with average size of 10 mm, and in the studies where staging was detailed, 91% were node negative, meaning it had not spread and complete cure was possible due to early detection.

Power Doppler Sonography adds increased accuracy to breast imaging evaluation over ordinary ultrasound because it shows higher blood flow speeds, often a sign of cancerous activity in the breast. Studies have shown that suspicious blood flow identified by pre-surgery Power Doppler scans corresponds very well with the size, location and aggression of actual tumors that are then surgically removed. Thus, Power Doppler brings an important clinical dimension to breast cancer detection. 3D sonography clearly shows tumor margins and 3D Doppler affords an index of cancer aggression and metastatic potential.



Breast Sonograms and Ultrasound offers the following advantages:
• Highest accuracy in dense (lumpy, cystic) breasts
• Non-invasive-no radiation exposure
• Cost effective
• Can distinguish cysts (fluid-filled masses) from cancerous tumors without needle sampling
• Ease of image guidance for breast biopsy

Women who should consider ultrasound scanning of the breast include those at risk of breast cancer because of personal or family history and the presence of fibrocystic (dense) breast tissue which increases cancer risk by 400%.

MPR-TV reports on Advanced Cancer Doppler Imaging. Meet Dr. Robert L. Bard (award-winning cancer diagnostician and expert imaging specialist) and see him break down the difference between a benign tumor and a fully-blown cancerous cell- and how using his advanced 3D and 4D Doppler technology makes all the time-saving difference in getting an accurate study.



Many routine imaging procedures can assure people that they are at risk for a disease or catastrophic medical event: heart scans, virtual colonoscopies, and lung screening are a few examples of ways to encourage healthy choices (nutrition, supplements, exercise, stress management, etc.) by reinforcing them. BARD CANCER DIAGNOSTICS is founded on the commitment to explore and implement the latest diagnostic technologies as a means of building the proper treatment strategy of many types of cancers. We also specialize in PREVENTION solutions for our patients who strive to maintain a health-conscious lifestyle as well as those who are at increased risk of certain diseases (hereditary factors or environmental exposure to toxic substances) by confirming that their efforts to prevent disease are working.

Using state-of-the-art equipment, Dr. Bard’s practice offers unique forms of sonography to evaluate blood flow related to tumor activity and to identify areas of suspicion. More tumor vessels signifies more aggressive disease. 3D & 4D analyses are non-invasive and rapid with results available to the patient during the visit. Patients in need of reassurance and world class imaging come from all countries for cancers of the prostate, breast, skin, thyroid and melanoma.
