RadNet to launch retail mammography clinic at Delaware Walmart

Imaging services provider RadNet will launch a mammography screening clinic December 8 at the Walmart Supercenter in Milford, Delaware.

The launch is the first installation of RadNet’s new “MammogramNow” program, which aims to enhance breast health awareness and accessibility and includes the integration of AI mammography screening software, according to the company.

“We believe RadNet currently performs close to five percent of all mammograms in the United States annually, and the pilot with Walmart is designed to provide even greater, convenient access for women,” said RadNet president and chief executive officer Howard Berger, MD, in a statement released by the firm.

The MammogramNow clinics will deploy AI technology for mammography screening and interpreting mammograms developed by DeepHealth AI, a software firm RadNet acquired in 2020.

In addition, the MammogramNow program will offer women access to RadNet’s Enhanced Breast Cancer Detection service, which works in tandem with a woman's annual breast screening regimen and enables patients to access the following tools:

  • Use of DeepHealth's FDA-cleared Saige-Density mammography breast density assessment software
  • An AI-driven review applied to suspicious exams and findings

As part of the pilot, RadNet will actively promote breast health education and awareness initiatives, providing the Milford community with information about breast health and the need for regular screenings, the company said.
