2012 Mammogram Opportunities
Bus will be located in front of Freudenberger House
What is the St. John’s Wellness On Tour Bus?
The St. John’s Wellness On Tour Bus brings you the area’s only state-of-the-art mammography equipment on wheels. Since 2001, our high-tech health bus, staffed with dedicated St. John’s health professionals, has delivered on-site services throughout southwest Missouri.
Why get a mammogram?
• One in nine women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime
• Breast cancer accounts for nearly one in three cancers diagnosed in women
• Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death in U.S. women
• Early detection and treatment is key to higher breast cancer survival rates
• Mammography is an excellent screening tool
A mammogram is a low dose X-ray of breast tissue. A mammogram screening can detect a lump as early as seven years before it can be felt. The Wellness On Tour Bus is an extension of St. John’s Breast Center. Your films will be read by St. John’s dedicated mammography radiologists. Films are also read by the Image Checker System. This system is the first FDA-approved computer aided detection system. Early detection is key to higher survival rates and lower treatment costs.
Mammogram (Insurance discounted price is $219.10 filed to insurance: Price will change 7/1/12). Price without insurance coverage is $313.
* If your wellness/preventative benefit has not been used for 2012, MSU insurance will pay 80% leaving you a total cost of $43.82.
Patients must meet the following criteria in order to have a screening mammogram on the Wellness on Tour Bus:
- 40 years of age (we can do a baseline on 35 and older if they have immediate family history of breast cancer)
- No current breast problems – discharge, lump, pain, etc.
- No previous breast surgeries and/or implants.
- Patient must have an established physician that they would like us to send their report to in order for us to do a mammogram.
- Must be at least one year since patient’s last mammogram, regardless of their insurance limitations.
- They will be scheduled one patient every fifteen minutes
- Each woman will receive a confirmation letter and should take their insurance card to their appointment.
