Throughout June—The Pink Life Saver Mobile Mammography Van in Stapleton & Lowry
The University of Colorado Hospital owns and operates a van equipped with 3-D mammography, technical and clerical staff, and radiologists to conveniently perform breast screenings. According to University Hospital, 3-D mammograms can detect invasive breast caner 40 percent sooner than traditional methods and reduce the number of false positives. Screenings take 20 minutes. The van is generally in Lowry on Tuesdays and Stapleton A.F. Family Williams on Fridays. All women older than 40 years old with insurance can schedule a screening. For more information or to schedule a screening contact Kourtney Hughes at firstname.lastname@example.org or 720.848.1604.
