Women's Imaging Center
The new Women’s Imaging Center at Sarah Bush Lincoln offers the latest in imaging technology - 3D mammography - plus a comfortable, spacious and private environment for the best possible mammography experience. Curved paddles on the Imaging Center’s mammography units are expected to decrease the discomfort that some women experience with mammography and thereby improve patients’ overall experiences.
Mammography breast imaging is of particular importance in the early detection of breast cancer because it is fast, accurate and inexpensive. SBL offers mammography at the Women's Imaging Center, located right next to the SBL Gift Shop near Entrance A, and in its mobile mammography van.
With access being cited as one of the main reasons women don’t have regular mammograms, Sarah Bush Lincoln’s Mobile Mammography unit was developed with help from BankCheck, a collaborative effort between nine area banks; the Illinois Department of Public Health, Office of Women’s Health; a rural Health Initiatives Partnership Program grant from the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine; and the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Together they help to support a van which provides mammograms. For women who have not been regularly receiving mammograms and health screens, the mobile mammography unit travels to area county health departments, businesses and SBL’s extended campus locations to provide access to women living in those communities. 3D mammography is also being added to the new SBL mobile mammography van that travels throughout the region.
The mobile mammography unit travels to the following counties: Coles, Clark, Cumberland, Douglas, Edgar, Effingham, Fayette, Jasper, and Moultrie.
