Interview With BFM The Business Station


I was interviewed by Karen D'cruz from BFM radio station this afternoon. They wanted to know about sonographer profession. The interview will be on air on next Monday in Career Unusual segment. I was really nervous during the interview and plus there a lot of activities going on all of the sudden. It was really funny because the distraction cost me a big time! I lost words but managed to finished it. But I think I can do better because I was all prepared for it. Maybe I'm just good at writing. Haha! Anyway, wait for it and I will share the link with you once it is posted in the BFM website.

Elastography : A Diagnosis Tool For Breast Cancer

You might haven't heard about Elastography before unless you are working in Imaging Department. Elastography is actually quite sometime in Medical Imaging. It is just the application of this technology is still minimal in Malaysia. Elastography is a non invasive method to confirm cancerous mass using the stiffness or strain of the soft tissue. It is widely use in breast, prostate and etc. For breast, it is very useful especially to reduced number of cases for biopsy. Since Biopsy is a quite costly procedure to determine whether the mass is malignant or benign. So, by using Elastography, we can classify the strain ratio which 1-3 is benign, >3-4 is suspected malignant and have to go through biopsy and 5 is malignant. Which can avoid the benign mass to undergo biopsy.
