Women’s Center for Radiology is pleased to offer quality mobile mammography to Central Florida.
WCR began its mobile mammography initiative in 2010 with a custom designed mobile service unit and a digital mammography system. The unit is completely self-contained and only requires space in a parking lot. The mobile mammography unit is accredited by the ACR and is capable of performing both screening and diagnostic mammograms, as well as having the ability to image those with implants.
We recognize that today’s busy women tend to put family and career ahead of their own health care. Our solution is to work with employers, state institutions, and corporate sponsors to bring this potentially life-saving cancer screening directly to their doorstep for no fee; thus giving employers an opportunity to provide an extension to their benefit program as well as offering employees an opportunity for screening without the need to take time off from work.
Women 40 years old and above no longer require a referral for a screening mammogram; however, women requiring diagnostic mammograms, or those having symptoms (discharge, lumps, etc), will need a physician’s referral. Women under the age of 40 are also required to have a referral.
On the mobile unit, WCR stresses Convenience, Comfort, and Care. The unit features a comfortable waiting room where patients are invited to relax and complete the office check-in process. When the appointment time arrives, the mammography tech will take the patient into the second half of the unit which contains a changing room and the mammography room. We strive to provide privacy and individual attention to every woman who visits us.
One of WCR’s goals is to provide continuity of care for our patients by returning to clients at the same time every year so women continue to have access to quality mammography. Please note that a minimum of 15 appointments is required to bring the mobile unit to a location. Employee spouses and neighboring businesses are welcome to attend as well.
WCR accepts most health insurances and screening mammograms are often covered 100%. Please check with your insurance provider for more information on mammography coverage.
