Breast Density Law
California Governor Jerry Brown signed into law SB1538 requiring health facilities performing mammography examinations, such as Lompoc Valley Medical Center, that identify patients having heterogeneously dense breasts or extremely dense breasts, based on the Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System established by the American College of Radiology, to include such existence of heterogeneously dense breasts in the summary of the written report that is sent to the patient.
The State of California Legislature has recently passed but not funded a law mandating that radiologists must report to the patient her breast density in the patient lay letter and that increased density could increase the patients risk for breast Cancer. To find out more click the link below:
