HARTFORD – The Radiological Society of Connecticut has recognized State Rep. Christie Carpino, an active member of the Public Health Committee, for her advocacy of patients and legislation that will provide greater access to life-saving breast cancer screenings. The radiologists announced Rep. Carpino as a recipient of their “Patient Hero” award at their semi-annual membership meeting.
The technology, called Breast Tomosynthesis, is a three dimensional mammogram which enables the radiologist to better determine if small cancers are present in the breast. The test has been shown to reduce, by 40 percent, patient callbacks for an additional test due to the uncertainty of images.
