Trailblazer Transforms Breast Cancer Diagnostic Care

Saving women’s lives means detecting breast cancer early. No one knows this better than Dr. Paula Gordon, medical director at BC Women’s Hospital Breast Health Program.

She's a visionary in breast health care. Her work exemplifies excellence in teaching. Her determination ensures every woman gets expert attention. She pioneers the newest applications of technology. And her diagnostic expertise brings a new advantage to breast cancer treatment in British Columbia.

Dr. Gordon is this year's recipient of the UBC Killam Teaching Prize. She is the first radiologist to ever receive this award. She deserves it.

Dr. Gordon's tireless efforts at BC Women's Hospital have created a first-of-its-kind flagship breast imaging and training centre. The Sadie Diamond Breast Health Imaging Centre will give women the most advanced diagnostic imaging experience - full field digital mammography. This will be where current and future radiologists train in this latest technology.

Dr. Gordon is also Clinical Professor of Radiology at UBC, and Chair of the Academic Committee of the Screening Mammography Program of BC.

BC Women's Hospital Foundation, its donors and Hospital staff congratulate Dr. Gordon on her outstanding achievement.
