Don't let the wheels fool you! Our MammoMobile is a breast center that hits the road. When you step inside, you'll experience the same calm atmosphere, privacy and quality care as in any of our office locations. The 32 foot-long, state-of-the-art breast screening facility is staffed by a certified female technologist and features a registration and waiting area, private dressing rooms and an exam room.
Once a mammogram is performed, one of Radiology Associates' board-certified radiologists who specializes in breast imaging will interpret the image and send the confidential results to you and your physician. So really, our mobile breast center isn't very different from our freestanding breast centers - they simply bring early breast cancer detection to you...closer to your home!
In order to qualify for a screening mammogram on board the MammoMobile, a woman must:
- Have an appointment
- Have a doctors order
- Not have any current breast problems (this includes, but is not limited to pain, leakage, lumps, dimples or fibrocystic breast disease)
- Not be pregnant or suspect she is pregnant
- Not have had a breast cancer diagnosis within the last 5 years
- Be able to get on and off the mobile unit unassisted
Detecting Cancer Earlier with 3D
The Radiology Associates MammoMobile offers 3D technology, the latest technology in mammograms. It is similar to regular mammograms but adds more detail, making it easier to identify breast cancer at earlier stages. During the exam, multiple low-dose X-ray images are obtained to be viewed as one millimeter slices of the breast. These images make it possible for a radiologist to see the breast tissue more clearly.
