SPRINGFIELD – Due for your annual mammogram? Getting your annual screening is easy with Mercy Health – Springfield’s Mobile Mammography program, which has a mobile unit offering mammograms in approximately 15 minutes.
Mercy Health Mobile Mammography’s mobile unit offers traditional 2D imaging as well as advanced 3D imaging, known as breast tomosynthesis, that can help increase the chance of detecting breast cancer early.

The American Cancer Society recommends that women can have a mammogram every year starting at age 40. Mammograms are usually a covered benefit with most insurance carriers.
Certified radiologists read all mammograms and because a second look can mean a second chance, Mercy double-checks all mammograms with a computer-aided detection system that detects more breast cancer than mammography alone. You and your physician receive a copy of the results.
