Ann Jenkins has been writing about the Hubble Space Telescope and its discoveries for most of her adult life. One of her earliest projects with the team was to write about a technology spinoff that used digital imaging technology developed for Hubble in breast biopsy systems to clearly and precisely image suspicious tissue and guide a needle to retrieve a sample. This saved patients from having to undergo a surgical incision, in turn reducing pain, scarring and recovery time. Years later, Jenkins benefited from the very same technology when a mammogram revealed something suspicious and she had to have a biopsy herself.
