Knowing the importance of early breast cancer detection, Gundersen Health System is dedicated to making screening mammograms easily accessible in the Tri-state Region.
Our 40-foot, self-contained mobile mammography coach travels to medical clinics, businesses, churches, communities, malls and other locations to bring this life-saving screening to women. Digital screening mammograms are performed in the unit and take approximately 20 minutes.
Key features of the mobile mammography coach include:
- Full-field digital mammography
- Screenings performed by a registered mammography technologist
- Mammograms viewed by a breast radiologist at Gundersen's Norma J. Vinger Center for Breast Care
One yearly screening mammogram for women over 40 years of age is covered by insurance, Medicare and Medicaid. Women will not be turned away due to inability to pay. Screening is by appointment only.
Gundersen's mobile mammography unit travels to some regional Gundersen locations where mammography services would not otherwise be available. We currently provide services to: Scenic Bluffs in Cashton, La Crescent, Harmony, Postville, Spring Grove, Lansing, Galesville, Houston, Holmen and Prevea Health in Arcadia.
