Breast cancer screening in Utah

Among commercially insured Utahns in 2010, women living in the Avenues and around the University of Utah had the highest rates of mammograms at 56 percent.

The state’s lowest rates — 36 percent and lower — were largely found in rural Utah: Sevier, Piute, Wayne, Grand, Daggett, Duchesne, Uintah, Grand, San Juan, Juab, Millard, Sanpete and Tooele counties.

Other low-rate locations include the west side of Salt Lake City, Clearfield and Hill Air Force Base areas, southern parts of Utah County and Magna.

The state average in 2010 was 43 percent.
