SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (WDTN) – Mercy Health-Springfield is offering mammogram screenings through their Mobile Mammography program.

The program offers about 15 minute long screenings at convenient locations near your home or workplace.

The mobile unit offers 2D imaging and 3D imaging, also known as breast tomosynthesis, to increase the chance of finding breast cancer early.

All mammograms are read by certified radiologists and are double-checked by a computer-aided detection system that can detect more breast cancer than the mammography, for clear results. You and your doctor will receive a copy of the results.

Verify Springfield Regional Medical Center is an in-network provider with your insurance carrier for the best coverage and ask your doctor when you should have a screening.

Most insurance carriers have screening mammograms as a covered benefit.

Mercy Health offers financial need-based assistance for people who are uninsured or under-insured. For more information, call 937-523-9332.

Walk-ins are generally accepted but not always available. Mercy Health suggest calling 937-523-9332 to set up an appointment. You should bring your ID and insurance card with you.

To have the Mercy Health Mobile Mammography at your business or organization for employees and community screenings, call 937-523-9330.
