Mammograms can detect abnormalities in breast tissue before more obvious symptoms are present, and they remain the most reliable screening method for early detection of breast cancer.
As the region’s only triple-accredited breast cancer center, UC Health’s highly experienced, board-certified team of experts provide the same quality of care via the mammography van as in an office environment.
UC Health’s 40-foot-long 3D Mobile Mammography Van is equipped with the very latest in mammogram screening technology and offers a comfortable registration area, waiting space and private changing rooms.
Screenings typically take about 15 minutes, and results will be sent to your provider within 1-3 business days. Mammograms for women ages 40 and up do not require a referral, but appointments are required.
Most insurance plans cover a yearly mammogram. Patients are encouraged to check their insurance policy for more information. Call now to schedule an appointment: 513-584-PINK (7465).
