UAMS MammoVan to Offer Mammograms in Magnolia Jan. 10

By Marty Trieschmann

To make an appointment, call (800) 259-8794.

The MammoVan regularly travels throughout Arkansas providing digital screening mammograms and breast care education.

Outfitted with the most advanced digital mammography equipment, the three-room mobile unit is staffed by a certified mammography technologist and a technical assistant.

Patients receive their test results within one to two weeks. Results also are sent to each patient’s primary care physician. If the mammogram shows a potential abnormality, the patient is referred for follow-up care.

The unit is handicap accessible, with a wheelchair lift entering directly into the mammography suite, and can accommodate women in a standing or seated position.
