Mobile Mammography May Be Coming to a Town Near You

October 17, 2017

Need a mammogram, but don't have a lot of time? Mercy offers a mobile mammography unit in Southwest Missouri, Southeast Kansas and Northeast Oklahoma (see schedule below).

The earlier you can detect breast cancer, the better are your chances for successful breast cancer treatment. With updated digital technology, Mercy's Mobile Mammography Unit, sponsored by the Jay Hatfield Companies, makes it quick and convenient to get a mammogram.

The actual screening typically takes just 15 minutes and is performed by registered female technologists. With Mercy’s mobile mammography, you get the advantages of an office exam:

  • The latest advances in digital mammography mean that you’ll get clear, detailed images for diagnosis
  • A private, comfortable setting makes your experience as pleasant as possible
  • Mammogram images are read by Mercy radiologists at Mercy Breast Center in Joplin
  • All of Mercy’s breast imaging facilities, including the mobile unit, comply with national quality standards

The test typically is covered by health insurance. Mercy will help file the claim.

Annual screening mammograms are recommended for women age 40 and older. Mammograms are the best tool for detecting breast cancer in its earliest, most treatable stage.
