Bringing good breast health to you
Alberta Health Services – Screen Test offers screening mammograms at two fixed locations – one in Edmonton and one in Calgary. But sometimes getting to a screening clinic isn’t easy or it’s simply too far away. That’s why Screen Test also has two mobile breast cancer screening trailers that travel to about 120 communities throughout rural Alberta.
These mobile Screen Test trailers provide high-quality breast cancer screening and breast health education to women who live in rural areas.
Note: Women that have been diagnosed with breast cancer and have completed their treatment should discuss returning to screening with their doctor. Women may return for screening one year after having a diagnostic mammogram that shows no further areas of concern. Screen Test Mobile Clinics perform screening mammography only and any diagnostic mammograms will need to be completed at a diagnostic facility.
To find out more about the Screen Test mobile program, when the trailer will be in your community, or to book an appointment, call toll-free 1-800-667-0604.
