Diagnostic Imaging and Interventional Radiology
Shannon L. Falcon, MD
Dr. Falcon received her medical degree from the University of South Florida, Morsani School of Medicine in 2006. She continued training at the University of South Florida by completing a diagnostic radiology residency in 2011 followed by a 1-year breast imaging fellowship at Moffitt Cancer Center in 2012. Shortly after completing her fellowship, she joined the breast imaging team. Dr. Falcon’s clinical focus is in the multi-modality imaging approach to breast cancer detection and management and she values the physician-patient relationship built during the process.
“Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, there is also a love of Humanity.”- Hippocrates. I believe that breast imaging represents an intimate and sometimes uneasy time for women. Our job as breast radiologists is not only to adequately diagnose and manage breast cancer, but to also recognize the unique person behind the images.
