THE brand new mobile BreastScreen
NT bus will pull into Tennant Creek
next week and women are urged to get
on board for a check up.
Fully equipped with specialised x-ray and sat-
ellite equipment which beams mammography
images back to Darwin, the hot pink mobile
unit was launched in July.
The service offers free screening mammo-
grams in a bid to detect early signs of breast
cancer to increase survival rates.
Women over 50 are advised to have a mam-
mogram every two years.
Radiographers and an office assistant operate
the mobile unit, designed to travel to remote
areas throughout the Territory.
BreastScreen NT will operate from the Any-
inginyi Health Clinic in Irvine Street from
Monday to Friday.
For appointments, call 132050.
