RadNet, Inc., a national outpatient diagnostic imaging service, announced it will pilot MammogramNow, a screening mammography service that is set to debut at the Walmart Supercenter in Milford, on Dec. 8th.
The initiative aims to enhance breast health awareness and accessibility, including the integration of DeepHealth technology, into the Walmart Supercenter. The service provides women with convenient access to crucial breast cancer screening services
According to a release, MammogramNow at the Walmart Supercenter will introduce a new model of breast health screening convenience. Harnessing hardware and software technology, powered by DeepHealth Artificial Intelligence, this program pursues an improved level of screening performance and promotes earlier detection. MammogramNow offers women access to RadNet’s Enhanced Breast Cancer Detection service (www.myEBCDmammo.com), incorporating AI to and disease detection during their visits, without extending their appointment time.
As part of the pilot, RadNet will actively promote breast health education and awareness initiatives, providing the Milford community with essential information about breast health and the critical nature of regular screenings.
“With MammogramNow, we are endeavoring to improve population heath and encourage preventative care. We believe RadNet currently performs close to five percent of all mammograms in the United States annually, and the pilot with Walmart is designed to provide even greater, convenient access for women, driving better compliance with annual breast cancer screening guidelines,” said RadNet CEO, Howard Berger, M.D. “The ability to offer leading-edge hardware, software and AI technologies in a non-traditional healthcare location, such as a highly-trafficked retail location like a Walmart Supercenter, could become a new paradigm for the future of consumer healthcare and preventative medicine.”
