Over the past year, women have understandably chosen to delay screening mammography due to COVID-19 concerns.
Asheville Women’s Diagnostic Center offers screening mammograms in a safe and responsible fashion and urges patients to re-prioritize such critical health screenings. Now that millions of Americans have been vaccinated against COVID-19, Asheville Women’s Diagnostic Center is encouraging women to schedule their annual mammogram as soon as possible. Early detection can not only ensure more treatment options but it could save your life!
According to the Society of Breast Imaging, if possible and when it does not unduly delay care; consider scheduling screening exams prior to the first dose of a COVID-19 vaccination or 4-6 weeks following your final dose, including a booster vaccine.
