2022 MAMMOGRAMS MATTER
October 29th, 2022 – 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM
Santa Fe Imaging – 1640 Hospital Drive. Santa Fe, NM 87505
About The Event
Mammograms Matter New Mexico began to highlight the importance of annual mammograms, especially for women over 40 or at a higher risk for breast cancer. Early detection is vital for the treatment and survival of breast cancer, and annual mammograms provide an opportunity to detect cancer early.
Mammogram Matter New Mexico was developed in 2021 by PINK “ME” as a mobile mammography screening program that provided access to more rural areas where transportation and easy access to care might present a hardship. For this event we are partnering with Santa Fe Imaging to do this event in a medical facility. Our goal remains the same. To provide access to this vital service to more people who need it. If you are over 40 or at a higher risk for developing breast cancer, we invite you to schedule your appointment. You can also share this event link with anybody who might be interested.
FOR SELF-PAY PATIENTS, THE COST FOR A MAMMOGRAM SCREENING FOR THIS DAY ONLY WILL $197.05, A 30% DISCOUNT OFF THE NORMAL PRICE FOR SELF-PAY.

About Desert Rose Women’s Center at Santa Fe Imaging
Desert Rose Women’s Center at Santa Fe Imaging has the largest dedicated team of breast imaging specialists.
Several of our radiologists have undergone additional and extensive subspecialty training in breast imaging. While this extra training is not required to interpret breast imaging examinations, we believe it brings an added measure of confidence for our patients and the doctors who care for them.

We also offer breast MRI, diagnostic mammography and ultrasound, bone densitometry and stereotactic breast biopsy.
The digital images from your examinations are stored securely and electronically, making it easier to instantly send images to a doctor or hospital any time they are needed to ensure your health and wellbeing.
