In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Redmond Regional Medical Center is offering digital mammograms at a reduced rate of $49 for the month of October. Each patient will also receive a free gift at their appointment.
 
“While mammograms are covered by most insurance providers, we wanted to make the screenings easily available to everyone regardless of insurance,” said Curt Layton, Director of Radiology. “Our goal is to encourage all women to take proactive steps to care for themselves and preserve their health. When it comes to breast cancer, early detection is the best protection.”
 
All mammograms at Redmond are performed on state of the art digital mammography equipment.

The key to mammography screening is that it be done routinely — once is not enough.

The chance of developing invasive breast cancer at some time in a woman’s life is approximately 1 in 8.

Breast cancer is the second most common type of cancer is women and the second leading cause of cancer death in women.

There are currently about 2.5 million breast cancer survivors in the United States.
 
A separate fee is charged for radiology readings for all mammograms.
