About Mammography Van
To improve the convenience and availability of mammography, Siteman operates a mobile mammography van that offers screenings by appointment at various locations in the St. Louis area and beyond. Using state-of-the-art digital equipment that emits the lowest possible radiation dose, technologists obtain two-view mammograms. Each exam takes about 20 minutes, requiring very little time from your busy schedule. Results are reported to the patient and her physician within seven to 10 days.
Our mobile mammography program is the longest running of its kind in the country. Our newest van, spanning 40 feet in length, is the fourth in three decades for Siteman Cancer Center.
Our radiologists are part of a team of Washington University Physicians that includes sub-specialized breast health experts who are affiliated with the internationally recognized Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology.
All radiology technologists on staff have advanced certification in breast mammography and have undergone rigorous training in breast anatomy and physiology, positioning and compression, as well as imaging of patients with breast implants.
Medical records transfer and second opinions
Previous breast imaging scans done at other institutions can be obtained free of charge for patients interested in transferring medical records to our imaging specialists. Patients must authorize consent for all medical records transfers. Previous images will then be compared to current mammogram studies at our facility. Second opinion consultations also are offered and can be scheduled.
Specially trained breast health patient navigators are available to guide patients through diagnostic and treatment services. Patients or providers may request a patient navigator upon referral or when scheduling an appointment.
