Coach Schedule

Why Mobile Mammography?

The best protection is early detection. Francine's Friends Mobile Mammography coach makes getting a mammogram quick, easy and convenient for women throughout northeast Indiana. The coach visits churches, businesses, and other locations to bring this lifesaving service to as many women as possible.

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 equipment as the two stationary sites of the BDC. A mammogram takes only about 15 minutes. Board-certified breast-imaging radiologists from FW Radiology interpret the exams.

All women over the age 35 are welcome. Screening mammography through this mobile service is for women who:
  • Have not had a mammogram in the past 12 months
  • Have no prior or current history of breast cancer or problems with their breasts
  • Are insured or uninsured
To schedule a mammogram, call 260-483-1847 or 1-800-727-8439, ext. 68120 (unless otherwise noted)
Appointments preferably should be scheduled prior to the date. Walk-in openings are available depending on schedule.
Occasionally, it may be necessary to cancel or reschedule a location. Please call to set up your appointment at the location you’ve chosen. That way, you’ll receive a call to reschedule in the event of a location cancellation. 

Please note:  The Breast Diagnostic Center (BDC) performs the screening. For women who have insurance, they will bill the insurance company. If the patient does not have insurance but has the ability to pay, the BDC offers a reduced rate if paid the day of the screening. For women without insurance, a high deductible, or resources to pay, funding is available.

Francine’s Friends Mobile Mammography is made possible through funding support from Francine’s Friends, Parkview Health, and the Breast Diagnostic Center:
  • Francine’s Friends, an all-volunteer 501c3 organization provides funding for mammograms for those who may be unable to otherwise receive this potentially lifesaving screening.
  • Parkview Health provides funding for diagnostic testing for uninsured and underinsured women who were screened on the coach as well as operational support.
  • The Breast Diagnostic Center (BDC) provides radiologic technologists from the BDC to staff the coach, which is furnished with the same FDA approved and Mammography Quality Standards Act approved equipment as the physical sites of the BDC.  The BDC also provides mammography readings from board certified, dedicated breast imaging mammography radiologists.
