Breast Density Information

North Carolina law requires mammography reports to include breast density information. The legislation is designed to improve breast cancer detection and prevention through educating patients about dense breast tissue and how it can conceal abnormalities during mammographic procedures, and encourages patients to actively participate in their screening surveillance protocol with their healthcare providers.

Mobile Mammography

UNC REX also provides screening mammograms through the UNC REX Mobile Mammography Unit, which travels throughout central North Carolina.
