To schedule an appointment for a mammogram on the van, call 315-464- 2582 or visit the Mobile Mammography website.
To be eligible for a mammogram on the van, women should:

The mammography van spans 45-feet and is equipped with a state-of-the art 3D digital mammogram system, private exam and dressing room and a waiting room. It’s supported with funds from Health Research Inc. and the New York State Department of Health grant and is part of Gov. Cuomo’s “Get Screened, No Excuses” Breast Cancer Initiative.
Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in women, affecting one in 8 women. It is also one of the most treatable cancers when detected early. Mammograms—x-rays of the breasts—are the most effective screening procedure for the early signs of breast cancer.
