Information for Providers

The Michigan Breast Density Notification Law directly mandates a change in practice for mammography providers that will greatly affect primary care providers. As patients are notified about their breast density, many will have questions and concerns that will trigger consultation with their primary care physician, physician’s assistant, or advanced practice nurse. This website provides information on breast cancer screening, breast density, breast cancer risk assessment and options for supplemental imaging that will inform the practitioner’s discussion with their patient.
