STATE OF THE ART TECHNOLOGY THAT WON'T MISS A SINGLE THING
Desert Imaging is proud to provide the life-saving study of 3D Mammography through the unrivaled convenience of Mammos on the Move (MOM). For more than 15 years, MOM travels across the greater El Paso region to provide mammograms to our patients at schools, businesses, medical clinics, health fairs and places of worship.
Patients are scheduled every 10 minutes. 25 to 30 patients can be scheduled for half day and up to 60 for a full day.
Book MOM today at your place of employment to save your employees valuable time off! We are available 7 days per week and your medical provider will receive your results within a few days. In most cases, orders from medical providers are not required.
Desert Imaging is proud to offer our patients the new Gold Standard in early detection: 3D Mammography. Also known as "tomosynthesis," 3D mammography detects breast cancer sooner, provides enhanced image clarity and reduces the number of unnecessary biopsies. This system's exceptionally sharp images enable our Radiologists to detect an average of 41 percent more invasive breast cancers and reduce callbacks by up to 40 percent.
The patient experience is virtually the same compared to the conventional 2D mammogram. The key difference is that the x-ray arm sweeps in a slight arc over the breast to take dozens of images. A computer then converts the images into a stack of thin layers, allowing the Radiologist to review the breast tissue one layer at a time. This process minimizes issues associated with dense tissue that can hide cancers or make it difficult to distinguish normal overlapping breast tissue from tumors.
The best part is the 3D mammogram is covered! As of January I , 2018, all insurance carriers operating in the State of Texas must cover the 3D screening in the same manner as a 2D screening.
Our expertise in mobile mammography has led us to design our own units for patient comfort. Our waiting area seats 8. We have 2 comfortable dressing rooms. The units are self-sufficient using their own electricity and internet connections. The unit weighs 18,000 lbs. and mesures 48 feet with the truck. It requires 10 parking spaces.
We offer a complete spectrum of diagnostic imaging and screening services utilizing only the most advanced technology.
