Message to Our Patients

This week, the American Cancer Society (ACS) revised their guidelines on breast cancer screening for women. The new ACS guidelines recommend that women with an average risk of breast cancer receive annual mammograms starting at age 45.  Additionally, the latest guidelines recommend mammograms every two years for women age 55 and older.  While these changes are important, the ACS recommends that women between the ages of 40 and 44 have the opportunity to start annual mammograms. Finally, and similar to past guidelines on this topic, the ACS does not recommend breast self-exams.

Despite the latest changes to breast cancer screening guidelines, we at Adventist Healthcare, acknowledge that mammography screening saves lives and early detection is critical for improving breast cancer survival. Several well-respected organizations, including the American College of Radiology, the Society of Breast Imaging and the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, continue to recommend screening mammograms beginning at age 40 and yearly thereafter for most women while they are in good health.

The latest breast cancer screening guidelines may create confusion and concern among women who are unsure about when and how to be screened for breast cancer.  We encourage women to discuss breast cancer screening with a physician or other healthcare provider to make an informed decision based on personal and family health history.  For women who are considered high-risk based on their personal or family history, additional supplemental screening with tools such as MRI may also be recommended.  Mammograms are still considered the best tool for screening, and can detect up to 85% of all breast cancers, despite the recognized limitations of false positive exams and patient anxiety.

Shady Grove Radiology has joined Gaithersburg-based Adventist HealthCare

We are pleased to announce that Shady Grove Radiology has joined Gaithersburg-based Adventist HealthCare, the first and largest health system in Montgomery County.  Our 40-year history of providing excellent imaging and radiology services includes a close relationship with Adventist HealthCare, which operates Shady Grove Medical Center in Rockville and Washington Adventist Hospital in Takoma Park, along with rehabilitation, home care, mental health and other facilities throughout the region

Our organizations share a vision for the future and aligned missions with a focus on providing excellent care to the community.  We are pleased to formally become part of Adventist HealthCare and see this change as an opportunity to expand the services we offer in the future.

The integration with Adventist HealthCare also expands the Shady Grove Radiology physician group by seven physicians and adds subspecialty expertise in body imaging, neuroradiology, muskuloskeletal, interventional radiology and breast imaging to our team. All Shady Grove Radiology physicians are now part of the Adventist HealthCare Adventist Medical Group, which is an affiliate of the GW Medical Faculty Associates.    

In the coming weeks and months, you will see the six Shady Grove Radiology imaging centers change to Adventist HealthCare Shady Grove Radiology.  While our names will change slightly, providing quality imaging care remains our top priority. Integrating with Adventist HealthCare allows us to bring new efficiencies and coordination to our patients and physicians.

We thank you for allowing our team to care for you!
