New Process Designed to Protect Patients and Staff
Windsong has revised its breast cancer screening process to protect you, our staff and our entire community. In an attempt to minimize risk to all and decrease overall time in the facility, we have discontinued in person results. Instead, patients will receive written results in the mail within a week. If we identify anything questionable, patients will be recalled for any necessary additional testing.
We would like to reassure patients that when supplemental screening, such as breast ultrasound/sonogram is ordered, it is done as an additional added layer of assessment. This additional screening measure is taken to ensure that everything is normal and is often needed in women with dense breast tissue. Dense breasts are normal. 40% of women age 40 and over have dense breasts. More information on dense breast tissue can be found at windsongwny.com.
