For many women in the region, access to a screening mammogram is being improved by the McLeod Mobile Mammography Unit, which each week travels to businesses, industries, healthcare facilities and health fairs. Typical days of service are Monday through Thursday.
The unit provides a convenient, comfortable and private setting in which women can undergo a screening mammogram, a digital X-ray of the breast used to detect breast changes in women who have no signs or symptoms of breast cancer.
Women may schedule a mammogram on the mobile unit by calling McLeod Reservations and Scheduling at (843) 777-2095. Please mention that you are scheduling an appointment on the McLeod Mobile Mammography Unit and the date of the visit. For more information on appointment criteria or upcoming visits open to the public, please visit www.McLeodRadiology.org.
To schedule the unit to come to your business, please call (843) 777-5657.
The McLeod Mobile Mammography Unit is part of the continued commitment of McLeod Health to women of the Pee Dee and Coastal regions. The unit is the first of its kind for the northeastern region of South Carolina and was the first digital mobile mammography unit in the state. The unit is accredited by the American College of Radiologists.
The McLeod Mobile Mammography Unit was purchased by the McLeod Health Foundation through funds donated by generous supporters.
