You've heard of mobile mammography vans in the Houston area... and now a groundbreaking service—Mammosafe—elevates the mobile mammography experience.
Dr. Daniel Roubein has devoted his entire practice to serving patients through breast imaging. Throughout two decades as a radiologist, he became well aware that women often do not receive annual breast screening mammograms. In fact, only 29% of women in Harris County over 40 have had a mammogram in the last two years, regardless of socio-economic status.
Mammosafe: A Transformation in the Mobile Mammography Landscape
As a solution, Dr. Roubein envisioned an invaluable service that makes mammography convenient—something novel and groundbreaking that would increase the number of women who receive life-saving screenings. After years of research and development, he launched Mammosafe, a mobile mammography unit unlike any other.
Mammosafe is an innovative mobile mammography "coach" with a radiologist on board—a service not available anywhere else in the nation. Now women can get breast screening mammograms and often receive preliminary results before they leave the mobile unit. No where else does this combination of service and technology exist.
Bringing Mammography to Work Sites
Also unique is Mammosafe's collaboration with Houston area businesses. The Mammosafe mobile coach arrives at business complexes, office buildings and work sites to provide mammography services to women in the greater Houston metroplex.
Why Mobile Mammography Matters
Women over 40 should have a screening mammogram every year. If you are a woman over age 40, your lifetime risk of developing breast cancer is 1 in 8. This means you have a 12.5% chance of developing breast cancer even if breast cancer does not “run” in your family. The mission of Mammosafe is to involve employers to make access both possible and practical, and detecting signs of breast cancer while it is treatable.
While women are busy raising families and pursuing careers, they often put themselves last and do not take the time to schedule a mammogram—which can involve missing many hours of work and spending half a day at the medical center or a clinic. The mobile Mammosafe coach saves time and makes it easier to tackle the once-a-year screening, which women need and deserve.
Superior Breast Screening Services in a "Mobile Coach"
The term "mobile coach" more accurately describes the aesthetics and functionality of Mammosafe, which is light years ahead when compared to the typical mammography vans. Mammosafe is fully equipped with top-of-the-line, cutting edge full field digital mammography equipment—the same equipment used in the biggest and most prestigious breast centers and universities in the country.
