Dr Glenda Kaplan
MBBCh, MRCP, FRCR
I specialise in breast biopsies in patients with dementia or special needs. I have worked for 14 years as a Radiology Consultant specialising in breast imaging, plain films, CT, MRI and ultrasound. At breast screening clinics, I read 6,000 mammograms per year, weekly assessment clinics, and participate in yearly audits. I perform ultrasound and stereotactic breast biopsies, localisations before surgery and breast MRIs.
I perform the insertion of coils into tumours before neoadjuvant chemotherapy, breast biopsies, abscess drainage, peri-implant fluid drainage with plastic needle to avoid damaging the implant. I am a principal investigator in the Mammo-50 Trial.
