Francine's Friends Mobile Mammography

Convenient, 3D screening mammograms

Francine’s Friends Mobile Mammography coach brings 3D screening mammograms to your area, offering convenience and privacy for this important screening test, which takes only 15 minutes.

The interior of the 40-foot-long motor coach is designed for complete privacy. Radiologic technologists from the Breast Diagnostic Center (BDC) staff the coach, which is furnished with the same FDA-approved and Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA)-approved 3D equipment as the stationary sites of the BDC. Board-certified breast-imaging radiologists from FWRadiology interpret the exams.

Screening mammography through this mobile service is for women who:

  • Are age 35 and older and have not had a mammogram in the past 12 months.
  • Are insured or uninsured.

Many insurance plans are accepted, and funding is available to cover expenses for women who do not have sufficient financial resources.

Call 260-483-1847 to schedule a mammogram with Francine's Friends.
Appointments are preferred. Walk-ins are accepted based on availability.

About Francine's Friends

After Francine Schubert lost her battle with breast cancer, several of her friends met to find a way to not only honor Francine’s spirit and drive, but to provide life-saving screening mammography services to women in Fort Wayne and the surrounding area who might otherwise be unable to receive them. Their goal of establishing a mobile mammography unit was reached in the fall of 2005 and Francine’s Friends was born.
