October has been designated Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology has brought the awareness campaign to the Roosevelt Field Mall. Zwanger-Pesiri is teaming up with Simon Malls to “paint the mall pink” to encourage women to get their annual mammograms and protect their health. Zwanger-Pesiri locations are found throughout Nassau and Suffolk counties, offering the most advanced breast-imaging systems, such as 3-D mammography with C-View software and 3-D automated breast ultrasound system. Representatives from the company will be at Roosevelt Field Mall to answer questions, present mall patrons with educational materials on exams offered, as well as distribute special giveaways promoting the importance of breast health.
Mall visitors will also have the opportunity to donate money and pin a ribbon on the Wall of Hope, offering words of encouragement to those fighting breast cancer or in memory of loved ones lost to the disease. All donations will benefit Mondays at Racine, an organization that provides breast cancer patients with complimentary services and supportive therapies every Monday.
At a time when few were addressing the mental and emotional impact of being diagnosed with cancer, Mondays at Racine set out to attempt to offset its ravaging effects and provide solace, integrity, and support to its community members stricken with this disease. The program has grown to become a safe haven for the patient’s emotional wellbeing, as well as an important supportive resource center within our community. It has also helped hundreds of women deal with their affliction in a gentle and proactive way.
Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology, the largest and most respected practice on Long Island, has been serving the community for over 60 years. To date, there are 21 locations in Nassau and Suffolk counties, each providing a range of radiological specialties including musculoskeletal imaging, neurologic imaging, oncologic imaging, vascular imaging, and more.
With over 50 board-certified radiologists that have multiple subspecialties, and offering twenty-one 3T MRI units, seven 1.5T MRI units, three 1.2T open-sided MRI machines, twenty-four 3-D mammography units, five PET/CT scanners, and the first clinical outpatient MRI/PET system in the country, Zwanger-Pesiri continues to provide the highest quality of care and excellence to all of its patients.
