Appointments are made in 10-minute intervals, and you can expect to spend 20 to 30 minutes in our mobile mammography van. Upon entering, you will be greeted by one of our technologists and will complete all necessary paperwork in our cozy reception area. We have two dressing rooms available for privacy.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who is able to receive a mammogram on the TriHealth Women’s Services Van?
Women who are 35 years and older with no breast complications (lumps, masses, nipple discharge, etc.) and no breast implants are able to receive a mammogram on the van. Please note: Women who are 35 to 39 years old may want to verify that mammograms are covered by their insurance company if they do not have a physician’s prescription.
Do I need to have my prior images/films from another hospital?
Bringing a copy of your previous digital images on a disc or hard copy films the day of your appointment on the van is helpful in receiving results sooner. Otherwise, we allow up to 10 days for receiving your previous images/films before reviewing your mammogram.
Do I need to have a health care provider in order to have a mammogram on the TriHealth Women’s Services Van?
Yes, when scheduling a mammogram on the van, each patient is required to provide the name of the physician, nurse practitioner or nurse midwife she would like a copy of her report sent to.
What is the cost for a mammogram on the TriHealth Women’s Services Van?
Your insurance provider will be billed for the mammogram. In rare occasions where a company requires co-pay for mammograms, the company does have the option to cover the cost of the co-pay for all patients if it chooses to. For patients without insurance, funding is available for those who qualify. For more information about qualifying for a no cost mammogram, call 513 569 6565.
How and when do I receive the results from my screening?
A copy of your report will be sent to the health care provider you designate during scheduling. A letter with your results will be mailed to your home within two weeks. If additional films are required, you will be contacted within 24 to 48 hours by a staff member at one of our Breast Centers.
