The Importance of an Annual Mammogram

Did you know that 1 in 6 women in Rhode Island are diagnosed with breast cancer?  That’s higher than the national average! Rhode Island has the 3rd highest rate of breast cancer in the country.

Annual screening mammography lowers the risk of dying from breast cancer. Here in Rhode Island, it’s paid for by all major insurers.   That’s right.  Your insurance company will pay for your annual mammogram regardless of your deductible being reached.  This includes RI Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, Medicare, United Health Care, Aetna, Cigna, Tufts Health Plan and Harvard Pilgrim Health Care.

Radiology Associates is a Rhode Island based medical imaging group that performs thousands of annual screening mammograms.

Mammography screening EVERY YEAR results in a 51% reduction in death rates and a 33% decrease in breast cancer that has spread beyond the breast at the time of diagnosis. You have a choice!
