Breast Imaging Video Visits
Weill Cornell Imaging at NewYork-Presbyterian is offering an opportunity to discuss and review recent breast imaging via a scheduled virtual video visit with a radiologist. Video visits are conducted from the convenience of the Weill Cornell Connect patient portal. During this visit, patients will be able to view their images while speaking to the radiologist in order to gain a better understanding of their results. Please call (646) 962-2273 to speak with our dedicated nurse navigator for more information or to schedule a telehealth appointment.
Dense Breast Tissue & Breast Cancer Screening
New York State law requires us to notify patients if they are found to have dense breast tissue. This notification includes the following; having dense breast tissue may increase your risk of getting breast cancer. Dense breasts also make it more difficult for radiologists to spot cancer on mammograms. While mammography is still the best test available to detect breast cancer, patients with dense breasts may consider additional screening exams such as ultrasound and MRI.
The breast imaging specialists of Weill Cornell Imaging at NewYork-Presbyterian are pleased to offer free consultations to answer your questions and to review the available options with you.
