"Free 3D" Mammograms for Eligible New Mexico Women

Posted on May 24th, 2016 by msequeira

An appropriation from the state of New Mexico is helping some New Mexico women get three-dimensional mammograms. A 3D mammogram takes several images of the breast and compiles them into a three-dimensional image. This enables radiologists to detect breast cancers more easily and lead to fewer call-backs for re-imaging.

To qualify for a free 3D mammogram, women must meet age, insurance and income eligibility criteria. Learn more: read the media alert, see our online flyer or call 505-272-4545 to schedule your mammogram today.

Ursa Brown-Glaberman explains 3D mammograms and the program at UNM to Mike Jaxson, KSVP-FM:


to Richard Eeds at KVSF-FM, and to Dan Mayfield, "The Morning Brew."
