California Governor Renews Breast Density Reporting Legislation Through 2025.

The Radiology Business Journal (9/11, Walter) reports California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) signed SB-1034, extending the state’s “breast density reporting legislation...through 2025.” Amy Colton, a nurse and patient advocate, said in a prepared statement, “This is potentially life-saving information for the women of California. While our hopes were for a complete repeal of the sunset clause, we are grateful California women will continue to receive information about their breast density and its implications for cancer detection and risk.” Colton added, “The notification provides a foundation for the continued, critical conversation between patients and physicians to increase early detection.”
