Helping Thousands of Eastern Tennessee Women Since 1986
Regular mammograms are essential to your health care. Yet, all too often, busy schedules, work duties, lack of transportation, and family responsibilities prevent many women from receiving this life-saving screening. Thanks to our mobile mammography services, Knoxville Comprehensive Breast Center can come to you to make getting your mammogram more convenient. Since creating Tennessee’s first mobile mammography program in 1986, we’ve helped thousands of women across the eastern part of the state and beyond. Mobile mammography units make it easier to get a quality digital mammogram. Reach out today to learn more about this innovative service and others we offer at our breast center.
FDA-Certified Digital Screening Mammography Equipment
Breast cancer claims the lives of countless women every year. Digital mammography makes it possible to detect breast cancer early enough to make a difference in a patient’s prognosis. Utilizing low-energy X-rays, digital mammography is safe and effective. KCBC’s mobile mammography units offer the same superior digital mammography screening equipment found in our facilities. Knoxville Comprehensive Breast Center and our mobile digital mammography machines are certified by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This certification process assures that the equipment is state-of-the-art and follows a high standard of health care delivery.
Who Makes an Ideal Candidate for Mobile Mammography?
Mobile mammography services benefit women at or over the age of 40 who are not experiencing any breast problems. If you have experienced lumps, painful swelling, or other suspicious symptoms, please call us for a diagnostic appointment in our office. Additionally, women who are not pregnant or breastfeeding make the best candidates for mobile mammography. If it’s been over a year since your last screening mammogram, we encourage you to consider a mobile mammography screening today.
On the day of your screening, be sure to wear a shirt that is easy to remove above the waist. Do not wear any deodorant, perfume, or ointments on your breasts, as these could interfere with the digital X-rays. Please let us know if you have breast implants or if you have had a benign breast biopsy in the past. We will follow up with your results via phone or letter (usually within 3-5 business days) and coordinate further care as needed. Some patients may be referred to our facilities for a diagnostic mammogram.
