When Kvinna President and Co-Founder Angela Barnes recently learned that her close friend had been diagnosed with breast cancer, her heart broke.

Her friend’s mammogram had come back clear just months earlier, so what happened?

Angela dug deeper, and was dismayed by what she learned. Like her friend, tens of thousands of women have cancer that slips by undetected every year in the US. Mammography alone is failing women—especially women with dense breast tissue.

With these unacceptable facts weighing heavy, Angela’s heart went from broken to determined.

Through research, she discovered a powerful new Automated Full Breast Ultrasound. Immediately she knew that she wanted to make Automated Full Breast Ultrasound’s unique and effective early detection screening available for all women. And thus the KVINNA Breast Care + Imaging clinic was born—a clinic devoted to educating and empowering women to make the very best decisions for their health.

Belinda Barclay-White, MD

Radiologist

Belinda Barclay-White M.D. is an American Board of Radiology certified physician who has specialized in Breast Imaging for over 25 years. She is passionate about whole breast screening untrasound for breast cancer in women with dense breast tissue. Breast cancer can be found earlier and smaller with breast ultrasound, enabling women to undergo significantly less invasive treatments with better quality of life and outcomes.

Since automated screening ultrasound became available in 2009 she enthusiastically introduced this to her practice and feels whole breast screening ultrasound should be made widely available to women in communities everywhere.

Dr. Barclay-White grew up in England. She immigrated to Phoenix AZ in 1974. She completed her residency and fellowship at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Phoenix in 1981 and continued to practice and teach at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Maricopa County Hospital. She opened Breastnet in 1998 in Phoenix, a full service breast diagnostic center which offers same day results to women with breast related problems.
