SGHS began its mobile mammography in 2006 with the custom designed WOW, a completely self-contained mobile health vehicle that features the same advanced digital mammography equipment found at the Health System’s Breast Care Center. It is staffed by female mammography technologists specially trained to perform breast imaging, and all mobile unit mammograms are read by the same group of radiologists who review Breast Care Center mammograms. The WOW is accredited by the American College of Radiology and certified by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
All mammograms require a physician’s order; most insurances are accepted and financial assistance is available to patients who qualify. For more information about low or no-cost mammograms for uninsured or low-income persons in Brantley, Camden, Glynn, Long and McIntosh counties, call 912-466-5235.
