Screening Saves Lives
Read about a Hermitage woman whose bilateral breast cancer was found thanks to the MammoVan.
The MammoVan makes it possible for women across Arkansas to benefit from UAMS’ mammography services close to home.
A mobile mammography unit, the MammoVan regularly travels the state offering efficient and quick screening mammogram services.
The MammoVan is outfitted with the most advanced digital mammography equipment and is staffed by a certified mammography technologist and a technical assistant.
Patients receive their test results within two to three weeks. Results also are sent to each patient’s primary care physician. If the mammogram shows a potential abnormality, the patient is referred for follow-up to the appropriate services.
The unit is handicap accessible, with a wheelchair lift entering directly into the mammography suite. It also is designed to accommodate women in a standing or seated position.
For more information or to make an appointment, call 1-800-259-8794.
