KCTV: 3D Mammograms fully covered in Kansas and Missouri starting in 2019

December 29, 2018

Saint Luke’s was the first in the Kansas City region to offer 3D mammograms so we have the most experience with this technology.  Unlike the majority of locations in the city, we only have fellowship trained breast radiologists interpreting the 3D mammograms.  We, therefore, offer the best exam interpreted only by highly skilled physicians. 

Starting January 1, 2019, insurance in Kansas and Missouri will fully cover this screening. 

Saint Luke's East Hospital's Lead Interpreting Breast Radiologist, Dr. Ruby Meierotto, talked to Better Kansas City about what this means for women in the Kansas City area.
