Radiology Associates of Hartford would like to wish you a happy birthday… and remind you about the importance of breast cancer screening.
Connecticut has one of the highest rates of breast cancer incidence; but thankfully, a relatively low rate of mortality likely due to increased screening mammograms. It is recommended that women aged 35-39 receive a baseline mammogram.
It is recommended that women age 40+*:
- Practice self-breast awareness by being familiar with how your breasts normally look and feel and report any changes to a healthcare provider right away
- Get an annual breast exam by a health professional
- Receive a mammogram once a year, every year, after turning 40
Equally as important as having a mammogram are the expert radiologists who interpret your exam. Radiology Associates of Hartford is the region’s premier group of doctors specialized in breast imaging. To schedule your mammogram call us at 860.714.2724.
