Windsong Mobile Mammography at Walden Galleria Mall August 27th


Although early detection of breast cancer is saving lives, many busy women have little time to get screened. To make it even easier for women who are busy with back to school shopping, this year Windsong Radiology has partnered with WGRZ to provide its mobile mammography service on Tuesday, August 27th at Walden Galleria Mall.

Windsong’s mobile mammo will be on hand in the shopping center’s parking lot between Macy’s and World of Beer from 8:00am to 4:00pm, providing busy women with the opportunity to have their breast cancer screening.

Women are reminded that a doctor’s script is required for the breast cancer screening which is covered by insurance. Women that are interested are encouraged to schedule their appointment to minimize wait time. Women without insurance also welcome. According to Dr. Markus Holzhauer, medical director of the mobile unit, the goal of the mobile mammo unit is to eliminate barriers to this life saving exam. Early detection of breast cancer, when it is most easily treated, does save lives.

The mobile mammo provides women the same access to Windsong’s high quality services, including 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 3000 women have been able to take advantage of Windsong’s mobile mammography thanks to many partners throughout Western New York who are equally dedicated to removing barriers to access.
