Return to Mammography Care Toolkit

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a nationwide decrease in breast cancer screening.  The American College of Radiology® (ACR®) and Society of Breast Imaging (SBI) have created a “Return to Mammography Care” toolkit of free, downloadable and customizable resources to explain to women ages 40 and older why and how it is necessary and safe to #ReturnToCare — for yearly mammograms.  Access the toolkit here

As a breast radiologist, you are saving lives. But, did you know that as a result of the pause in screening due to COVID-19, more than 35,000 breast cancer diagnoses could be delayed and 5,200 more women may die in the United States over the next decade?

Now, you can help your practice and your referring clinicians reconnect with women ages 40 and older to schedule yearly mammograms postponed by the CDC-recommended shutdown.

The American College of Radiology® (ACR®) and Society of Breast Imaging (SBI) have created a “Return to Mammography Care” toolkit of free, downloadable and customizable resources to explain to women ages 40 and older why and how it is necessary and safe to #ReturnToCare — for yearly mammograms.

The toolkit can be accessed in several places: the ACR Breast Imaging Resources, the MammographySavesLives.org Provider Resources and at EndTheConfusion.org.

The ACR strongly encourages you to download these materials and:

  • Customize with your branding where indicated.
  • Share with your referring clinicians and advise them to send to their patients.
  • Place patient materials on your website and in your waiting room.
  • Print and include in correspondence with patients and referring providers.

Empower your referring providers to make better screening recommendations. Let’s act together to help our patients #ReturnToCare!
