Mobile Digital Mammography
Metro Health’s mobile digital mammography service makes expert care easier for patients in need of a potentially life-saving screening close to home.
Digital mammography was developed to improve the quality of images for women with dense breast tissue. The process allows physicians reviewing the images to manipulate them in order to better identify abnormalities. Younger women also benefit from this technology.
- Crisper, clearer images
- Quicker processing time
- Easy for doctors to read and store in your electronic medical record
The digital mammography van is now available on a rotating basis at Metro Health Allendale, Caledonia, Cascade, Cedar Springs, Hudsonville, Wayland, and the Metro Health Community Clinic. It can serve up to 15 patients a day and provides the benefits of digital technology.
You don’t have to be a patient at Metro Health to schedule a screening mammogram at one of the neighborhood outpatient centers or at Metro Health Hospital. Just call (616) 252-4461 to set up an appointment.
