  • Francine’s Friends Mobile Mammography
  • Main Library, Plaza
  • May 1, 2015
  • 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

The best protection is early detection — the American Cancer Society recommends that women have a mammogram every year starting at age 40.  Francine’s Friends Mobile Mammography coach makes getting a mammogram quick, easy and convenient for women throughout northeast Indiana.  The interior of the 40-foot-long motor coach is designed for complete privacy. Radiologic technologists from the Breast Diagnostic Center (BDC) staff the coach, which is furnished with the same FDA-approved and Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA)-approved equipment as the two stationary sites of the BDC. A mammogram takes only about 15 minutes. Board-certified breast-imaging radiologists from FW Radiology interpret  the exams.  Results will be sent to your doctor.

Screening mammography through this mobile service is for women who:

  • Are age 35 and older and have not had a mammogram in the past 12 months
  • Have no prior or current history of breast cancer or problems with their breasts
  • Are insured or uninsured

If you have insurance, BDC will bill the insurance company.  If you do not have insurance but have the ability to pay, BDC offers a reduced rate if paid the day of the screening.  If you do not have insurance or the resources to pay, funding is available.

Appointments should be scheduled prior to the date. Walk-in openings are available depending on schedule.  To schedule a mammogram or receive additional information, call 260-483-1847 or 1-800-727-8439 ext 26540.
