Imaging Specialists offers discounted mammogram rate this month

  • Wednesday, June 5, 2013

Imaging Specialists, a free-standing private imaging facility in Mount Pleasant, has announced that they will offer a special discounted mammogram rate throughout June. While the self-pay mammogram rate at hospitals can cost up to $300, Imaging Specialists will be offering mammograms to self-pay patients for $100.

“We believe that patient care comes first,” Dr. Michael Garovich said. “We know that healthcare can be costly, and we want to be a part of the solution, not the problem, when it comes to healthcare costs.”

Any patient can schedule a mammogram with Imaging Specialists, even if they have had previous mammograms at a different location. “We will handle retrieving the previous mammogram films, so that we can adequately compare with the most recent results,” Garovich added. “It is important for the patient to know that they have a choice as far as where the imaging takes place.”

The American Cancer Society guidelines suggest that all women over the age of 40 receive an annual mammogram. Some patients with high risk factors are recommended to start at 35 years old. For some women, a breast MRI is recommended as well. At Imaging Specialists, a breast biopsy can be done onsite immediately following a mammogram, if an area of concern is detected.
