 COVID-RELATED INFORMATION

To maintain safety for both you and our staff, please comply with the following guidelines –

  • Do not enter the mobile unit before your appointment time. While we appreciate those of you who come early to appointments, we have scheduled mammograms at an interval that allows the patient before you to have their mammogram and exit the unit before you enter and to give us time to sanitize surfaces after each patient.

  • Please wear a mask. Any type of face covering is acceptable upon entering. You will be asked to put on a hospital-grade mask if you don’t have one. Please be sure the mask covers your mouth and nose. All our mobile unit crew members will also be wearing a hospital mask.

  • We will take your temperature and ask you COVID screening questions when you arrive. If you have a temperature or answer “Yes” to any of our screening questions, you may be asked to reschedule your mammogram.

COVID VACCINE INFORMATION: The Society of Breast Imaging (SBI) has recommended that women not have a screening mammogram for at least six (6) weeks after their second COVID vaccine dose. This is because the two approved COVID-19 vaccines can potentially lead to inflammation of the lymph nodes located in the armpit which can mimic findings that can lead to further evaluation for possible breast malignancies. At this time, please do not schedule an appointment for a screening mammogram on the mobile unit if you have started receiving your vaccines or until you are at least six weeks post-vaccine.
