Diane Heaton, M.D. and Connie Nguyen, M.D., radiation oncologists at Oklahoma CyberKnife, recently hosted a ladies night out for female physicians in our community.
The event, which was attended by seven local physicians, was held on Tuesday, May 3, at the Tulsa Glassblowing School.
The night was co-sponsored by Advantage 3T MRI, a diagnostic imaging office located in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Advantage 3T MRI utilizes the newest, most advanced technology in diagnostic imaging with images that are 100% digitally captured, allowing referring physicians and interpreting radiologists the ability to view images securely online.
In recognition of May being National Brain Tumor Awareness Month, the topic for the evening was intracranial tumors. Oklahoma CyberKnife had banners displaying information about intracranial tumors and collateral on hand to pass out. Dr. Heaton spoke with many of the attending physicians on what types of intracranial tumors can be treated by the CyberKnife® Robotic Radiosurgery System and how she uses the high resolution 3T MRI scanning for better visibility during treatment planning.
In addition to the intracranial discussion, guests enjoyed delicious food as they mixed and mingled with other physicians and had questions answered by Dr. Heaton and Dr. Nguyen. They also got to learn about the art of glassblowing and were able to make an item to take home with them.
Oklahoma CyberKnife was proud to co-sponsor such a fun and informative event. We believe it is important to bring physicians in our area together and offer them an opportunity to network. Networking is a great way for physicians to connect with peers and industry experts, and gives them a broader perspective on what is currently happening in the healthcare industry. It makes them a more informed physician, which in return, makes them a better resource to their patients.
