brrh


Quick, Easy, Effective

The screening - a simple, low-dose x-ray - takes just 15 minutes and is performed in the privacy and comfort of our spacious van. Experienced, certified mammography technologists guide women through the experience, and two board-certified radiologists independently interpret the films. Patients or their physicians receive results within 48 hours.

A Name You Can Trust

We perform over 10,000 mammograms each year as part of our early detection program. When cancers are detected early, survival rates are better than 95%.
