Frequently asked questions ...
What is Mobile Mammography?
Mobile mammography allows The Rose to bring our screening services to you -- at corporate offices, clinics, your doctor's facility -- wherever there's a small room and women in need of quality breast health care! The Rose Mobile Mammography Program uses the Planmed Sophie Classic Mobile system for high image quality screening mammography, which provides the same high-quality mammograms in your location as those available at one of The Rose facilities.
Who can use Mobile Mammography?
Women 35 and older who are not experiencing any breast symptoms or problems can be screened by Mobile Mammography. Please note you must also have a primary care physician before your appointment.
Who is not a candidate for Mobile Mammography?
Women who are under age 35, have been diagnosed with breast cancer within the prior two years, have had a mammogram within the past 12 months, are pregnant or currently breast feeding or are experiencing symptoms cannot be screened and need to schedule their imaging at one of The Rose's two facilities.
What is the Mobile Mammography site criteria?
Each site must provide:
Adequate ramp for loading/unloading
Parking for van and patients
Private screening room (9'x9' minimum)
Wide hallways for maneuvering equipment
Elevator (if not on the first floor)
Three grounded outlets per room
Additional space for a small table and two chairs
The Rose Mobile Mammography Program now includes four vans and covers 35 counties. Our Mobile Teams provide quality breast health care to thousands of women annually who otherwise might delay or (worse ) skip a screening because of barriers such as distance and finances. Your support will speed us toward our goals of adding more counties to the map of mobile coverage and five mobile units by 2015.
