Breast Density - A Patient's Prospective
There is a growing trend in many state legislatures towards requiring the inclusion of information on a patient’s parenchyma density in the lay letter sent to a patient with the results of her mammogram.
States which require density information in patient letter
Similar legislation has been is also being considered in state legislative committees across the United States. Additionally Federal Bill HR 3404 is under consideration by the U.S. Congress that would provide for this type of notification nationwide.
MagView and Breast Density
MagView has the ability to include this information, as well as specific legally required information for those patients in the patient letter based on the radiologist’s selection at the time of reporting. In this way, practices can fulfill this requirement with no further user input. Additionally, MagView is working on the cutting edge with many of our customers on analyzing exactly what impact, if any breast, density has on a patient’s risk of breast cancer. We are excited to be a part of this growing field.
