SF 77 – Mammogram Notification Requirements



Senate File 77 requires facilities providing mammography services to include information on breast density in mammography reports sent to patients pursuant to federal law, if the patient is categorized as having heterogeneously dense breasts or extremely dense breasts, according to national guidelines. The bill includes language that must be included in the patient’s notice. The bill clarifies that nothing in this bill impacts existing mammography facility liabilities beyond the notice requirement.
