Southern Hills Hospital is hosting Mammos & Mocktails, two special event days that provide after-hours mammogram appointments, mocktails, refreshments and a free gift* on Saturday, May 5 and Tuesday, May 15. Southern Hills Hospital offers a breast tomosynthesis solution designed with a three-dimensional (3D) iCAD (computer-aided detection) imaging technology that provides superior early detection of breast cancer. Mammogram appointments are available between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 5 and from 4 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, May 15 by calling 702.916.7288. Mammograms are also available during non-event times, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Along with the 3D technology offering, and in honor of moms everywhere in May, Southern Hills Hospital and its sister facilities MountainView and Sunrise, are offering a $75 3D cash price upon request, available from May 1 to 31. Patients must be at least 40 years old and no doctor’s order is required for screening mammograms.
A key challenge when performing screening mammography is keeping the radiation levels as low as possible. With Southern Hills’ equipment, there is no increase in dose from a 2D standard mammogram to a 3D view, which means there is no increased radiation to patients during the 3D breast exam.
To schedule an annual mammogram or take advantage of the $75 May special screening mammogram program, call 702.916.7288. *One per customer; while supplies last.
