Latest News and Updates Regarding COVID-19

A Message from Windsong to our Patients:

COVID Vaccine and Booster Update - We all know that the extended delay of certain preventive screening exams may lead to a later stage diagnosis. Please rest assured that Windsong's expert healthcare team continues to take extra steps to keep you safe.  We appreciate your patience as we do our best to protect our patients and staff.

We at Windsong understand that any additional workup to a screening mammogram causes anxiety. For this reason, Windsong’s Radiologists agree with the statement provided by the Society of Breast Imaging when planning to schedule your screening mammogram and the COVID-19 vaccine:

“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 the second dose of a COVID-19 vaccination.”

 

Windsong's breast imaging specialists recommend the same delay of 4-6 weeks for anyone receiving the COVID booster.

The body’s natural response to the administration of any vaccine, including COVID-19 vaccines, may include temporary enlargement of lymph nodes. Although this response is expected, it may require additional imaging workup, as well as follow up imaging to ensure resolution, which often is done with an ultrasound of the axilla (armpit) and does not add additional radiation to the tissue. It is expected that most patients that require follow up will be cleared after their first follow up.

Those who need diagnostic breast imaging for lumps, pain, discharge, follow-up, etc., should not delay their appointments.
