That's a concern for Sharon
Hansen because of a recent report from
the New England Journal of Medicine.

The report found women with dense
breast where 3 to 5 times more likely
to be diagnosed with breast cancer.

It's the reason Doctor Alan Henry
now uses 3-D ultra sound as well on
some of his patients.

The 3-D ultrasound makes it
possible for doctors to see through the
layers of breast tissue, from three
different perspectives.

Dr. Henry says the challenge with
mammography is that both tissue and
tumor show up white making it difficult
sometimes to tell the difference.

GRAPHIC=RADFORD/VMI Last Year V-M-I lost at Radford


by 24 points. This Season the Keydets
came into the Dedmon Center looking to
move into a Tie for 4th Place in the
Big South. The Highlanders were on the
other end of the spectrum having lost 7
straight coming into tonight.

17 degrees outside that's how you dress
your kid to bring them to the game.

Reggie Williams came to the game

dressed warmly as he lit it up early,
hitting the 3 from the corner, he had
33 for the game.

But Chris Oliver would do him 3
points better scoring 36 for the
Highlanders, 2 coming on the high
handoff from Amir Johnson.

V-M-I likes to get a lot of shots
up, Matt Murrer put it up 18 times on
the night, made this one for 3 from the
Corner.
*CG final VMI But the Highlanders would shoot 107 over 50 percent from the field, Reggie Radford McIntyre will go to the bucket and get 114 the hoop for 2 of his 20 points.
Radford wins 114 to 107 over V-M-I.

Bruins vs Titans During the regular season - the
Blacksburg Bruins lost twice to regular
season champ Hidden Valley, but tonight
was a completely different story for
Doug Day's team.

Six-Four sophomore Harland Brown
gets out in transition and throws one
down with authority for the Bruins.

The Titans found themselves in a
major hole all night long and even
efforts like this one from T.C. Bane on
the inside weren't enough to slow down
the Burg.

Another transition opportunity
and Greg Keys throws the no-look fake
on the defense and drops in a layin as
the Bruins led by as many as 20 points. *CG final Blacksburg

Head Man Kevin Garst Knew the loser of
this game was done for the year.

Pick this one up in the 3rd

lane and hits the floater off glass to
give Pulaski an 8 point lead.

Salem would come-back in the
Fourth Quarter, George George gets 2
straight buckets inside and this game
is headed to overtime.

In the Extra Session, Melvin

the friendly role from the rim and
Salem takes a 2 point lead.
