Williams said the July 31 appointments are full, but there are some available on Aug. 1. She said if there’s enough interest, Invision is open to a return trip later.
Clients are asked to bring insurance cards and driver’s licenses to their appointments, which only take 15 minutes.
Women who are over 35 years old and have not had a mammogram in the past year are eligible for a mammogram. Ages 35 to 39 are eligible for one scan within those years; 40 and over are eligible annually. Invision will process everything through each client’s insurance, so there is no cost to the client.
All of images will be compared to previous year’s images and read by a Breast Fellowship Board Certified Radiologist and sent to the patients’ primary care provider.
