Mammography coach comes to Sammamish on Wednesdays
May 4, 2010
The Evergreen Hospital Medical Center Mammography Coach will be open 8:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. each Wednesday until further notice at the Evergreen Primary Care Center Sammamish, 22850 N.E. Eighth St.
The 40-foot mobile digital mammography coach contains the same digital mammography equipment used in the Breast Center at Evergreen Hospital. Patients will register in the reception area and complete a clinical history form in a relaxing environment. After changing into a gown in a private room, a mammography tech performs the exam.
The mammography images are interpreted at the Breast Center by board-certified breast radiologists. Screening mammograms are also analyzed with computer detection tools. The radiologist’s report is then sent to the patient’s primary care provider.
When patients call 899-2831 to schedule their mammograms, they will be offered the option of an appointment in the mobile coach or at the Breast Center at Evergreen Hospital. You do not need to be a patient at an Evergreen Primary Care Center to access the mobile mammography coach.
