Solis Mammography, the nation’s largest independent provider of breast screening and diagnostic services, has been selected to participate in the American College of Radiology’s inaugural Mammography Positioning Improvement Collaborative.

Led by Sarah Pittman, M.D., clinical assistant professor in the Department of Radiology at Stanford University School of Medicine, the improvement collaborative aims to establish and maintain consistent performance standards in mammography positioning in the United States and internationally.

The quality of mammography images is fundamental to early breast cancer detection. Substandard positioning of a patient at the mammography machine is the primary cause of inadequate images, which can lead to undetected breast cancer.

With its national footprint and history of clinical and practice advancements in breast health and early breast cancer detection, Solis Mammography was a natural choice to partner with the American College of Radiology on the improvement collaborative. Recently, Solis Mammography integrated novel AI software into its 3D screening platform to provide greater accuracy and lead the way for future innovation in women’s health.

“As a leader in mammography, we are re-defining and re-engineering the way breast cancer is diagnosed in this country,” said Chirag R. Parghi, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of Solis Mammography. “We want to catch every cancer we can, including tomorrow’s cancer today. This mission aligns perfectly with the American College of Radiology in designing this collaborative. We are obsessed with process improvement and are eager to partner with academic and medical institutions committed to advancing mammography.”

This effort builds upon Solis Mammography’s collaboration with renowned academic medical centers. Among its joint venture partnerships, Solis Mammography provides breast health and diagnostic services at UChicago Medicine and Einstein Healthcare Network in Philadelphia.
