Invision Diagnostics will bring its mobile 3-D mammography van to Ocracoke from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday at the Ocracoke Volunteer Fire Department.
Women who are over 35 years old and have not had a mammogram in the past year are eligible for a mammogram. Women 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. If you do not have insurance the self-pay price is $185.
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.

Invision suggests patients schedule their annual screening mammogram either prior to receiving a COVID-19 vaccine or four weeks after their second dose or booster to avoid a potential false positive exam.
