New York, NY (May 18th, 2021) – Ezra, the NYC-based startup transforming early cancer detection through its MRI-based screening service, announced today that it has added the ability to book insurance-covered mammogram to its suite of products.
In the US, only 66.7% of women aged 40 and over have had a mammogram within the past 2 years according to the National Center for Health Statistics.
Furthermore, a recent study conducted by investigators from the NCI-sponsored collaborative network Breast Cancer Surveillance Coalition (BCSC) discovered a significant decrease in mammography screening during Covid-19, specifically from March 2020 through May 2020, which could impact early breast cancer detection and breast cancer outcomes.
Based on a survey done by ezra, one of the reasons why more than a third of women eligible for a screening breast mammogram have not gotten one in the past two years is because mammograms are not convenient to book.
Ezra is addressing this problem by launching the fastest, easiest way to book a screening mammogram.
Ezra’s mission is to screen for early cancer for everyone.
The company has created the most advanced full-body MRI screening service to screen for potential cancer in up to 13 organs, and is developing Artificial Intelligence technology to make the customer and medical provider experience faster, more accurate, and more affordable.
Ezra’s new mammogram booking service is available at the company’s partner facilities in New York City. The company will be introducing the scan at its California locations in the upcoming weeks.
With the addition of the new plan, ezra members now have the ability to choose between the following services:
Ezra is a New York-based healthcare technology company utilizing medical imaging and Artificial Intelligence to provide individuals with a full-body cancer screening service that is fast, accurate, and affordable.
By advocating for early cancer detection as part of annual health screenings, ezra is on a mission to create a new standard of preventative care, providing people with the necessary knowledge to make decisions about their health. The company’s cancer screening services are available in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.
