Sutter’s Diagnostic Imaging centers across the region — including Sutter Davis Imaging in Davis — gave uninsured women the opportunity to receive free digital mammograms on Saturday in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Twenty-seven women were seen in Davis during the free screening sessions. Women will receive their results within several days and those women whose mammograms show an abnormality will be referred to Sutter-affiliated physicians to discuss next steps and receive follow-up care.
This service was spearheaded at Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital in 2009, where more than 70 uninsured women were given free mammograms. Inspired by the feedback and success of the program, Sutter Diagnostic Imaging expanded it to its other locations in Davis, Elk Grove, Roseville and Sacramento.
