Mammograms are the only screening test proven to lower breast cancer deaths by early detection. Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center and the National Comprehensive Cancer Network recommend that women have a mammogram every year, starting at age 40.
Banner MD Anderson’s Big Pink Bus* is a mobile mammography unit providing early breast cancer detection services to women all over the greater Phoenix area of Arizona. Our goal is to improve access to these important preventive breast screenings for those who may not be able to access them otherwise.
The Big Pink Bus offers digital 3D mammography, some of the latest mammogram technology and the same innovative equipment found at our various Banner MD Anderson facilities.
All Big Pink Bus mammograms are reviewed by Banner MD Anderson radiologists (specialists in breast imaging). If abnormal findings are found, follow-up care will be handled by our caring, top-rated breast cancer program, including experts in breast cancer and reconstructive surgery, medical oncology, radiation oncology and genetics.
This mobile mammography bus is available for on-site employer-specific outreach events, as well as other special events, especially in underserved communities.
