MammoVan Breaking Boundaries

chrisbFall 2013

The UAMS MammoVan brings FDA-certified mammography services to women in 26 rural Arkansas counties that lack those facilities.

Since it first hit the road in 2010, the three-room mobile unit has provided mammograms to more than 6,200 women. 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 one to two weeks. If an abnormality is found, the patient is referred for follow-up to the appropriate services.
