The Jewish Hospital Mobile Mammography Units make screening mammography quick and easy. The self-contained, 38-foot vans are staffed by female radiology technologists who specialize in mammography. The units use the same FDA and Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA)-approved equipment as the hospital. Mammograms on the mobile units only take about 15 minutes.
All mammograms performed on the mobile units are screening mammograms—the most common way to detect early-stage breast cancer. In 2005, The Jewish Hospital Mobile Mammography Units provided screening mammograms to more than 14,000 women in communities throughout the Greater Cincinnati area.
Mobile Mammography is treated as any other mammogram and is a covered benefit by most insurance companies. For best coverage, verify that The Jewish Hospital is a panel provider with your insurance company.
