Get to know Diagnostic Radiologist Dr. Joseph P. Russo, who serves patients in Pennsylvania.
(WorldFrontNews Editorial):- New York City, New York May 25, 2023 (Issuewire.com) – Dr. Russo is a board-certified, fellowship-trained diagnostic radiologist specializing in breast imaging. In his role at Redan Imaging Consultants, LLC, he looks forward to putting his experience toward breast center development, and ambassadorship for valuable imaging tools, while continuing clinical practice.
“The value of mammography is something that has been illustrated to me on a personal level. Back in the 80s, when breast cancer awareness and mammography were in their infancy, a close family member lost her battle. Fast forward to our system today – another family member took advantage of St. Luke’s digital screening mammography, discovered small cancer, and had it completely removed. These experiences motivate me to actively get the message out there promoting the power of breast imaging” expressed the doctor.
