Screen Test, as part of the Alberta Breast Cancer Screening Program (ABCSP), offers mammograms and information on breast health to women in Calgary, Edmonton, and over 120 communities in rural Alberta. This service uses two mobile mammography clinics to ensure eligible women in rural communities are able to get breast cancer screening. These trailers are “clinics on wheels” complete with a reception area, dressing rooms and an exam room.
For more information and to see the mobile clinic schedule, visit our website.
Based on Albertan recommendations (guidelines):
Women, aged 50 to 74, who live in Alberta and have no symptoms or personal/family history (average/not at increased risk) are eligible for regular breast cancer screening using mammograms every 2 years.
Once a woman turns 50, she will be sent a letter to let her know that she is at an age when screening is important and invite her to get screened (if she hasn’t had a screening mammogram already).
