EVANS, GA (WFXG) -

Women now have a quick way to get a mammogram and it's on wheels.

University Hospital's mobile mammogram unit travels all of the CSRA offering women speedy tests.

Women can sign up for an appointment online and pick the location most convenient for them. They won't have to wait in lines and can avoid the hospital, and results are given instantly.

"Screening mammograms is very important," said Pennie Sabol, a staff mammogramer. "Early detection is the best way to cure breast cancer. The earlier you find it, the better the chances you have being cured for it. It's a very simple exam. We schedule patients every 10 minutes. So we get a lot of patients in."

To sign-up for mammograms in the mobile unit, visit University Hospital's Mammography web site.
