To bring preventive and diagnostic care to every woman needing it, ECMC also offers the Mobile Mammography Unit for comprehensive breast care across Western New York—from the heart of downtown Buffalo to rural towns throughout our communities.
Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in women, and one of the most treatable when detected early. Mammograms—x-rays of the breast—are the most effective screening procedure for the early signs of breast cancer.
Sponsored by The ECMC Foundation, Buffalo Bills and Western New York Breast Health – Dr. Vivian Lindfield, this mammogram program helps women and doctors detect breast cancer earlier, and has already brought life-saving breast treatment to many of our patients.
Features of the mobile mammography unit include:
A doctor’s prescription is necessary to receive a mammogram. If you don’t have a family doctor or medical insurance, we can help you through the process to make you sure you can receive your mammogram. In addition, if you need a ride, our program’s sponsors can provide transportation to a location in your neighborhood.
