Dr. Andrea Madrigrano is a general surgeon with an expertise in breast cancer at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago.  She shares her concern about the high rate of re-excision, the need for a second operation, after a lumpectomy to save the breast with early-stage cancer.  Dr. Madrigrano discusses how the Kubtec Mozart 3D tomosynthesis unit allows surgeons to make more informed decisions in near real time cutting re-excision rates in half.
