Northside Hospital expands Mobile Mammography Services to Pickens Co.
ATLANTA - Beginning Sept. 30, Northside Hospital’s ScreenAtlanta mobile mammography van will offer digital screening mammograms in Jasper on a quarterly basis. The ScreenAtlanta van will be located in the parking lot of the Kroger at 115 Bill Wigington Parkway, at the intersection of Highways 515 and 53.
ScreenAtlanta Mobile Mammography is a community service of Northside Hospital and offers digital screening mammography on a year-round basis.
“We use the same state-of-the-art mammography equipment available at the hospitals and our outpatient imaging centers; it’s just in a mobile unit,” said Kathy Kinsella, operations manager, Northside Hospital Radiology. “And all mammograms on the ScreenAtlanta van are performed by certified female technologists, in a private and comfortable setting.”
Appointments are required and participants must meet American Cancer Society and Northside Hospital screening guidelines to qualify. Appointments typically last 15 to 20 minutes and insurance can be filed.
