Breast Cancer Patients Get Undertreated
Principal investigator Gary Lyman, professor of medicine and oncology,
comments on new research that indicates obese or poorly educated women
diagnosed with breast cancer are more likely to receive lower doses
of chemotherapy. (See the Medical Center news
release.) “Simply put, this evidence shows that doctors are
likely to reduce the chemotherapy levels for these women, even though
there is no solid medical basis to do it." (Also reported by Scientific
San Francisco (January 18)
System Makes Lasik Even Better
Scott MacRae, professor of ophthalmology, talks about a new computerized
system used in Rochester to improve Lasik surgery. "The biggest
benefit to patients with the Nomogram is they're less likely to need
a retreatment after the procedure. . . . It saves the patient time,
but more importantly, the patients see well right from the start."
