LIBERTY, MO. (Dec. 12, 2018) – The Susan G. Komen Foundation of Kansas & Western Missouri has selected fellowship-trained breast imaging specialist Amy Patel, M.D., to participate in its BigWigs campaign. She is the medical director of Liberty Hospital Women’s Imaging.
The effort engages local corporate and community leaders as representatives in the fight against breast cancer.

A native of Chillicothe, MO, Dr. Patel previously was part of the Breast Imaging Section at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Instructor of Radiology at Harvard Medical School. She received her medical degree from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine, completed her residency in diagnostic radiology at the University of Kansas-Wichita and completed her fellowship at Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, Saint Louis, MO.
