It makes a real difference who reads a woman’s mammogram. Of the approximately 27,000 radiologists in the United States, only about 1,300 are considered specialized breast radiologists.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) December 10, 2014
Solis Mammography, the nation’s largest and most innovative independent provider of mammography services has opened its first of four centers in Houston, Texas at 1900 North Loop West. Solis Mammography has successfully transformed the mammography experience for thousands of women across the U.S. by combining a peaceful and caring mammography experience with an exceptional diagnostic expertise.
“Our goal is quite simple” said James Polfreman, CEO of Solis. “We want to remove as much anxiety as possible from the entire mammography process. We believe that process starts at the point a woman considers getting her mammogram and does not end until she receives her results. To that end, we always partner with highly experienced radiologists who specialize only in breast imaging."
In Houston, Solis Mammography is partnering with Dr. Stephen Rose, President of Rose Imaging Specialists. Dr. Rose is a nationally renowned leader in breast imaging and Houston’s foremost authority on 3D mammography, the newest technology in the breast imaging field. Dr. Rose recently co-authored a ground breaking study on 3D mammography published in the June 25, 2014, issue of The Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA). The paper was awarded JAMA’s “Scientific Paper of the Year.” The new Solis center will open with the latest in 3D mammography technology.
It makes a real difference who reads a woman’s mammogram. Of the approximately 27,000 radiologists in the United States, only about 1,300 are considered specialized breast radiologists. It is no coincidence that 25 of those 1,300 (2%) are members of Rose Imaging Specialists. Nowhere else in the country is there this type of collective and collaborative breast imaging talent and expertise. Studies have shown while general radiologists may read mammograms, their accuracy is much less than the radiologists who specialize in breast imaging.
Dr. Rose has served as Solis Mammography’s national Medical Director since August 1, 2014. “I am very excited that Solis Mammography and Rose Imaging Specialists are able to bring this great partnership to Houston,” said Dr. Rose. “With the collaborative expertise of our specialized breast radiologists and Solis’s unique ability to provide a peaceful experience to its visitors, together we will be able to deliver the confidence and peace of mind the women of our community desire and deserve”.
