The Omnibus Bill means good news for mammography screening!
29 Dec 2015
As reported by The Society of Breast Imaging: The House and Senate passed legislation placing a two-year moratorium on the implementation of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force 2015 draft recommendations on breast cancer screening. This legislation provides language to continue mandatory insurance coverage for mammography; and would direct insures to follow the Task Force’s 2002 guidance which recommended women 40 years and older undergo screening mammography every one to two years.

X-rays are painless, non-invasive exams that are used to detect abnormalities in the body. We’ll perform all general x-rays including but not limited to, chest, knees, ankles, wrists, hands, spines and hips.
X-rays are electromagnetic radiation that, when passed through the body, penetrate the internal structures creating a computer image digitally. The varying density of the different structures will appear distinctive from one another on the x-ray film.
Our imaging center features a new digital x-ray unit with a room that doesn’t require development of traditional x-ray films. Our technologists get digital results immediately for every type of exam, including all bone work, scoliosis surveys and leg length measurements. Immediate results enable us to get answers to you more quickly and keep you waiting less.
How To Prepare:
To prepare for your x-ray exam, we recommend that you wear loose comfortable clothing. You may be asked to put on a gown and to remove items such as jewelry or piercings.
If you’re pregnant or may be pregnant, please let your x-ray technologist know prior to the exam.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the examination your physician has requested, please call our main number at (914) 253-9200.
