"Continue Mammography Care" Toolkit

With the resurgence of COVID-19 and its variants, many breast imaging facilities are reinstituting operational procedures unseen since the weeks following the end of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention-mandated non-urgent care shutdown in July 2020. If your practice is among those reinstituting these procedures, the toolkit below again may help you safely provide screenings during this resurgence, as well as inform patients and referring providers about the steps being taken to ensure patient safety.

Availability issues led many women to skip their 2020 mammogram; the COVID-19 resurgence may cause many more women to do so in 2021. Missed appointments may lead to delayed cancer diagnoses, unnecessary breast cancer deaths and more invasive treatments. Let’s not let this happen. Even during a pandemic, the American College of Radiology® and its members can work together to ensure that patients and referring providers continue to know that Mammography Saves Lives!
