KCTV: Medical Providers Encourage Women to Make Mammogram Appointments
Medical providers across the Kansas City Metro still see too many women put off mammograms. In 2019, a law was passed for both Kansas and Missouri that made 3D mammograms covered by insurance. Giving patients no reason to forego the life-saving screening.
KCTV spoke with Dr. Ruby Meierotto, breast radiologist at Saint Luke's Cancer Institute, about why women put preventive screenings off and how Saint Luke's is helping make sure patients in rural communities get the same great care as those in the Kansas City metro area.
