At the onset of COVID-19, screening mammography was put on hold to help decrease the spread of the virus. One unfortunate consequence of this has been a substantial decrease in the detection of early-stage cancers.
Well, there is no better time than the present for patients to resume their annual screening. At Connecticut Breast Imaging, breast imaging specialists are prepared to care for patients in the safest and most compassionate manner, using state-of-the-art technology and top diagnostics.
- Patients will be prescreened over the phone for symptoms of COVID-19 and asked a few questions related to travel.
- At the time of the appointment, patients will be escorted by a technologist to a private room and given a clean gown for the exam.
- All offices use robust cleaning protocols and all equipment and surfaces are cleaned and disinfected after every patient examination.
- Waiting rooms are not crowded, and patients and staff are required to practice social distancing.
- All staff, patients, and physicians are expected to wear a face mask that covers their nose and mouth.
