In the early 1960′s, with the increasing awareness that a new federal healthcare plan called Medicare was a distinct possibility, it became evident that the New England Roentgen Ray Society – founded in 1923 – could no longer serve as a forum of both educational and socioeconomic practices of radiology. Dr. Edward Kilroy, with the help of many others and with the backing of the American College of Radiology, established the Massachusetts chapter. Since that time, the chapter has been devoted to serving patients and society by advocating for radiology professionals to advance the science, social, and economic practice of radiology.
The Massachusetts Radiology Society has created a resource for patients and physicians to help understand breast density, given the passage recently of a law requiring breast density to be reported to patient’s with increased breast density. Please visit breast.massrad.org to learn more about breast density.
