Screening mammograms are back.
Have yours with here with confidence.
During the COVID-19 crisis, many women have put off their mammogram. However, regular mammograms are an important part of a woman’s health and well-being. What’s more, regular mammograms give women their best chance for early detection.
At RAH, we’ve implemented thorough procedures and protocols to ensure your safety. This includes:
- Screening all patients and staff for symptoms of COVID-19 prior to arrival
- All equipment is thoroughly sanitized between patients
- Common surfaces are sanitized repeatedly throughout the day
- Patients check in online and may wait in the comfort of their vehicle before appointments rather than the waiting room
- All patients and staff wear a face mask; staff also wear gloves
If you’ve been putting off your mammogram, take comfort in the fact that we’re doing everything possible to ensure your safety.

Ask about 3D mammography, an important technological advancement that can improve early detection and improve your screening experience.
Adding 3D mammography (or tomosynthesis) to a screening mammogram increases the cancer detection rate by about 40% and significantly lowers recall rates.1 It has also been shown to find more invasive cancers earlier than traditional mammography2, which is why so many hospitals and imaging centers are adopting this technology.
3D Mammography at Radiology Associates of Hartford is:
- Safe and effective, with very low radiation exposure
- Uses the latest digital and 3D technology
- Reduces the need for callbacks
- Is performed with advanced computer-aided detection (CAD) technology
- If follow up testing is needed, we offer the same quality testing as the hospital, but at a much lower cost—which means less out-of-pocket for you
Please contact your insurance company prior to scheduling to determine medical coverage.
