On Saturday, October 13th, 2018 the Kathryn Krickstein Pressel Mammovan is coming to the Boca Raton Airport.
Presented by the Boca Raton Regional Hospital and hosted by the Boca Raton Airport Authority (BRAA), the Mammovan will be performing mammograms from 8:00AM to 2:00PM at the Customs and Border Protection Facility, which is located at 3694 Airport Road, Boca Raton, FL.
The Mammovan utilizes the most state-of-the-art mammography unit on the market — the Senographe Pristina 3D Mammography System. The 3D Pristina provides exceptional imaging quality while creating the most comfortable mammography experience possible.
By combining a curved, warmer, more comfortable detector with easy to reach armrests and a faster, quieter scanning process, users no longer have to deal with the discomforts often associated with mammograms. This is the only mobile 3D Pristina system in Florida, providing a special opportunity for those who schedule an appointment during the Mammovan’s visit to the Boca Raton Airport.
“There’s a significantly improved survival rate if breast cancer is discovered early,” said BRAA Executive Director Clara Bennett. “It’s critical for every appropriate age woman to get a mammogram. With the convenience of the Mammovan and the comfort of the newest technology, there’s less and less excuses not to get checked out.”
Mammograms are 100% covered by insurance. There is also financial assistance available for those in need. Individuals who have had a mammogram elsewhere in the past are will need to bring their previous images (CD) with reports to their appointment.
“October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month,” said Bennett. “There’s no better time to make an appointment to get screened.”
