Windsong Mobile Mammography Screening Series at Walden Galleria
— State-of-the-art 3D Mobile Mammography service available for women at region’s largest shopping center —
Buffalo, NY: Although early detection of breast cancer is saving lives, COVID-19 has made it increasingly difficult for many women to find time and overcome other barriers to getting screened. In an effort to combat these obstacles, Windsong Radiology is continuing its partnership with Walden Galleria in 2021 by providing its Mobile Mammography service to women in the community. This service will be available as a three-part series, starting with the first event screening this spring and continuing with summer and fall events at the shopping center throughout the year. On Wednesday, May 19, Windsong’s mobile mammography unit will be located in Walden Galleria’s parking lot near the main mall entrance between Macy’s and JCPenney from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.
Extra steps are being taken to keep patients safe. A prescription from their doctor is required in order to get a screening. If they have not seen a doctor in some time or do not have one, Windsong’s Physician Assistant will be on board the mobile unit providing clinical breast exams and mammogram scripts that same day. The mobile unit can also help women without insurance and assist with transportation, wheelchair accessibility, and translation services.
“Our mobile mammo patients have expressed how pleased they are with all that is being done to provide a safe breast cancer screening environment during COVID-19,” stated Chelsea Giaraffa, Physician Assistant for Windsong Mobile Mammography.
Windsong’s ‘mobile mammo’ provides women access to high quality, 3D mammography or digital breast tomosynthesis, a state-of-the-art technology that has proven to detect smaller cancers earlier, when they are easier to treat.
To date, over 8,000 women have completed their breast cancer screening thanks to many partners throughout Western New York who are equally dedicated to removing barriers to access.
