Alberta Health Services

Women ages 45-74 — the group most at risk of developing breast cancer — will have local access to mammography services when Alberta Health Services’ Screen Test program arrives in the community.

A mobile mammography trailer will be stationed at Crowsnest Sports Complex (8702 22 Ave.), Oct. 27-28, 30-31 and Nov. 1-4, 6-7.

Appointments are required. Residents can book an appointment or learn more about the program by calling 1-800-667-0604.

Screen Test is improving access to cancer screening for thousands of women in Alberta communities where mammography is not readily available.

A mammogram is an X-ray of the breast and has proven to be the most effective way to detect breast cancer. Early detection allows for a greater number of options for treatment and a better chance of survival.
