Mammo Task Force
ACS Mammography Guidelines still recommended
Posted on Thursday, December 10 2009
Rye Radiology has received numerous inquiries about recent U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) mammography recommendations. The doctors of Rye Radiology strongly disagree with the USPSTF proposed guidelines but do agree with the American College of Radiology (ACR), Society of Breast Imaging (SBI) and the American Cancer Society (ACS). The ACR and SBI responded to the USPSTF report stating, “Since the onset of regular mammography screening in 1990, the mortality rate from breast cancer, which had been unchanged for the preceding 50 years, has decreased by 30 percent.” The ACR, SBI and ACS recommend annual screening using mammography and clinical breast examination for all women beginning at age 40. More information is available at the ACR website: More information
Addition of Multi-Slice CAT Scan!
Posted on Tuesday, February 2 2010
We are pleased to announce the installation of our new multi-slice CAT (CT) Scanner. This is in addition to our new high field MRI and our existing open MRI.
Should your doctor advise that you need a CAT (CT) scan of your head, neck, abdomen, pelvis, bone, spine or any joint, please avail yourself of our new technology. This new CT offers increased speed of exam, lower dose and diagnostic precision.
Our new CAT Scanner is also ACR accredited; adding this modality to our other ACR accredited modalities mammography, ultrasound, stereotactic breast biopsy, ultrasound core breast biopsy, and MRI.
We also have a new computer program that allows your doctor to securely view your digital exam images and read your diagnostic report on-line, providing your doctor with an efficient method of accessing the details of the exam that you have had with us.
