The Mammography Van

Staff of Ellis Fischel's mammography van provides mammograms, clinical breast exams and breast health education to women throughout central and north central Missouri. The all-female clinical staff is comprised of certified mammography technologists and nurse examiners who provide the same level of care as a freestanding mammography facility. The program is accredited by the American College of Radiology and the Food and Drug Administration. 

What is the "Mamm Van"?

The 38-foot long van is a fully-inclusive clinic on wheels, featuring mammography and nursing suites.

Mammography Van Benefits

The mammography van service provides women a convenient and efficient breast cancer screening service. Most appointments take fewer than 30 minutes from check-in to completion.

Businesses can request a van visit  to provide screenings for their employees. Physicians in rural areas will find the van's services useful for patients who need more comprehensive screening than they can offer locally. Employers, rural physicians, church groups, county health departments and civic clubs can use the mamm van to provide an invaluable cancer screening and breast health service to the women of central Missouri.

Women may be eligible for free breast cancer screenings if they meet certain financial guidelines.

Patient Testimonials

Here is what some of our patients have said about the van service:

  • "Fast, convenient, painless and informative..."

  • "If a mammogram can be pleasant, this was. Staff was excellent."
  • "Staff on the unit were super. Arrived at my scheduled time and was out in half an hour. GREAT."
  • "It almost made a mammogram enjoyable. No wait time...very professional and very nice people to deal with."
  • "You deliver a very valuable cancer screening - I don't know how many who would get their testing done if it were not for the convenience of the van..."
