Windsong Mobile Mammography
Half of women 40+ schedule annual mammograms; the other half don’t. One of the primary reasons women delay mammograms is because they feel they can’t take time away from work, family, or other commitments. Other reasons include access and insurance concerns. Understanding this, Windsong’s mobile mammography program brings early breast cancer detection to the workplace and community, providing women with a more convenient option for annual screening mammography.
Our mobile breast center offers the same advanced 3D imaging technology and sub-specialized care as our freestanding breast centers, along with an all-female team of certified technologists. Appointments take less than 30 minutes from check-in to completion so you can get back to your day, and most insurance providers cover annual screening mammograms at 100%.
