      Nina Pozgar

(1) 360 degree Breast scan; (2) NO compression (does not hurt); (3) no ionizing radiation; (4) dense breast tissue easily imaged; (5) scans behind implants; (6) gives more accurate and faster results; (7) non-invasive-no contrast; (8) High patient put-through; (9) EASY AND INEXPENSIVE TO OPERATE! (10) testing at earlier age.The FDA has been stalling approval . . . radiologists' lobbying groups have failed to have supported the use of this equipment . . . suspicion of lobbying money to stop the approval most likely because this would cut into radiologist income.

      88 more signatures and change.org will put resources into this petition to help solicit signatures. I know there are a lot of women on my facebook. If you want an alternative early detection free of compression, dangerous radiation treatments . . . then you really need to JUMP ON BOARD AND SIGN. After 500 hospitals and 1,000's of patients that I have interviewed from Alaska to Puerto Rico . . . the patients tell me to encourage early detection. Here's your chance to make a difference for you and your families. SEE imds.com so you better understand what your are voting for. Thanks, George
