< > Effective - 28 Aug 2014    bottom

  192.769.  Notice to patients upon completion of a mammogram — effective date. — 1.  On completion of a mammogram, a mammography facility certified by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or by a certification agency approved by the FDA shall provide to the patient the following notice:

"If your mammogram demonstrates that you have dense breast tissue, which could hide abnormalities, and you have other risk factors for breast cancer that have been identified, you might benefit from supplemental screening tests that may be suggested by your ordering physician.  Dense breast tissue, in and of itself, is a relatively common condition.  Therefore, this information is not provided to cause undue concern, but rather to raise your awareness and to promote discussion with your physician regarding the presence of other risk factors, in addition to dense breast tissue.  A report of your mammography results will be sent to you and your physician.  You should contact your physician if you have any questions or concerns regarding this report.".

  2.  Nothing in this section shall be construed to create a duty of care beyond the duty to provide notice as set forth in this section.

  3.  The information required by this section or evidence that a person violated this section is not admissible in a civil, judicial, or administrative proceeding.

  4.  A mammography facility is not required to comply with the requirements of this section until January 1, 2015.
