Did you know that colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in U.S. men and women combined? The good news is that 80-90% of these deaths are preventable with colorectal cancer screening. The bad news is that only about ½ of adults between the ages of 50 and 75 get screened. Everyone should begin colorectal cancer screening at age 50, possibly earlier if you’re high risk.

02/22/2013 - F.D.A. Approves Breast Cancer Drug
The Food and Drug Administration has approved a new type of breast cancer medication that targets tumor cells while sparing healthy ones. The drug Kadcyla from Roche combines their established cancer drug, Herceptin, with a powerful chemotherapy drug. It also includes a third chemical that links the medicines together. The chemical keeps the cocktail intact until it binds to a cancer cell. It then releases the toxic chemotherapy drug to kill the cancer.
Cancer researchers say the drug is an important step forward because it delivers more medication while reducing the unpleasant side effects of chemotherapy. Learn more about Kadcyla and the main clinical trial that led to its approval in a New York Times article from February 22, 2013.
Read the New York Times Kadcyla article.
02/01/2013 - How's your Heart?
Heart disease is the leading cause of death among American men and women. High risk individuals are encouraged to have a Heartscreen CT exam to evaluate the level of calcium in their coronary arteries. The presence of calcium in the coronary arteries is a reliable indicator of heart disease. Early detection is key to taking the appropriate actions to reduce your heart attack risk and protect your health.
During February, Invision Sally Jobe is offering HeartScreen CT exams, also known as coronary artery calcium scoring, for a reduced rate of $99. If you may be high risk for heart disease, speak with your personal physician to get a referral for this exam, then call 720-493-3700 to schedule an appointment.

01/16/2013 - Dr. Google?
The Pew Internet and American Life Project has found that while most Americans go online for health info, they still rely on their doctors for treatment and guidance. Americans use the internet to self-diagnose, fact-check, prepare for doctors’ appointments, and follow-up on doctors’ appointments. We research our own health conditions as well as those of relatives.
Using the internet for health information is a natural extension of how people use search engines to find so many other things. Invision Sally Jobe believes it’s important to offer reliable and useful information regarding our exams and health conditions on our website. We hope our patients find our website informative and user-friendly.
Learn more about the Pew research.
01/09/2013 - Hysterosalpingogram (HSG) Fertility Test
A hysterosalpingogram (HSG) is an exam that looks at the condition of the uterus, fallopian tubes and abdominal area around them. It is primarily used to determine reasons why a woman may have difficulty becoming pregnant or sustaining a pregnancy. It is also done for women who have had tubal ligation or permanent contraceptive devices implanted into the fallopian tubes to verify the effectiveness of these procedures.
Invision Sally Jobe offers this procedure at our imaging center in Littleton.
01/03/2013 - Screening Exam Recommendations

08/26/2011 - 'Heart attack waiting to happen' isn't always obvious
As reported on CNN on August 26, 2011, a ‘heart attack waiting to happen’ isn’t always obvious. Even people who seem healthy and eat right may be at higher risk than they realize.
The most reliable way to tell if you’re at risk for heart attack or stroke is to have imaging exams that provide information about the condition of your arteries. Both exams recommended in an accompanying CNN article (“Will you have a heart attack? Tests that can tell”) - coronary calcium scan and carotid ultrasound – are offered by Invision Sally Jobe. Talk to your doctor about how these exams may help you.
View the CNN article.

07/31/2011 - SBI Position Statement: FDA Warns That Thermography Is Not an Alternative to Mammography
The Society of Breast Imaging (SBI) recently issued a statement saying they do not support the use of thermography/infrared imaging of the breast as either a screening tool in the detection of breast cancer or as an adjunctive diagnostic tool. Breast thermography was approved by the FDA in 1982 only as an optional exam in addition to mammography. There are currently no studies supporting the use of thermography alone or in addition to mammography that show clear benefits of the technique.
Read the FDA statement regarding breast thermography.
