Mobile mammography van visits area locations

As Mercy Health continues to evolve to better meet the needs of its patients and community, it has announced the region’s first mobile mammography unit has visits scheduled throughout the region.

The mobile mammography unit is customized for patient convenience and will deliver 3D mammograms to women 40 and older. It is equipped with the newest 3D technology and offers patients the option of self-compression, meaning the patient will have the ability to control the compression once they are in position.

The unit will make access to mammography services easier as well as increase capacity. It will offer safe and easy screenings at convenient locations throughout the 21 counties in Northwest Ohio and early diagnosis of breast cancer has proven better outcomes.

Screenings at the Mercy Health Mobile Mammography unit are by appointment only – call 833-MAMM- VAN to schedule. You and your physician receive a copy of the results.
