Southern Regional Offers Mammogram Special throughout October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Throughout October, Southern Regional Medical Center is offering mammograms at reduced pricing and special evening and weekend appointments in celebration of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Women with high deductibles or without insurance are able to receive a 2D/Screening Mammogram for $99 or a 3D Mammogram (at our Women’s Imaging Center at Spivey Station) for $149, which includes the Radiologist reading fee.

Early detection with screening mammography is the key to saving lives in the fight against breast cancer. The American Cancer Society offers guidelines for mammography for women at average risk for breast cancer. For screening purposes, a woman is considered at average risk if she doesn’t have a personal history of breast cancer, a strong family history of breast cancer, or a genetic mutation known to increase risk of breast cancer and has not had chest radiation therapy before the age of 30. The mammography recommendations for women at average risk are:

  • Women between 40 and 44 have the option to start screening with a mammogram every year.
  • Women 45 to 54 should get mammograms every year.
  • Women 55 and older can switch to a mammogram every other year or can choose to continue yearly mammograms.

2D/Screening Mammograms are offered at Southern Regional Medical Center, 11 Upper Riverdale Road SW in Riverdale; and 2D/Screening  Mammograms and 3D Mammograms are offered at The Women’s Imaging Center at Spivey Station, 7823 Spivey Station Boulevard, Suite 250 in Jonesboro.

The Women’s Imaging Center at Spivey Station is hosting Special Night and Weekend Hours for mammograms on Thursdays – October 14 and 28 – from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturdays – October 23 and 30 – from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. This is in addition to the regular mammography appointments: Southern Regional Imaging Services: Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. – 3 p.m. and The Women’s Imaging Center at Spivey Station: Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.
