Mammobus

The National Healthcare Group’s (NHG) Mammobus, a mobile mammography service, is equipped with a digital mammography machine. This allows mammogram images to be reviewed instantly, which can reduce the number of recalls greatly because of blurring issues. It also has a greater capacity to screen more participants, thereby benefiting more women.

Mammobus is the only MediSave-accredited mobile mammography service provider in Singapore.

Eligibility

In order to use the Mammobus service, patients have to complete a lifestyle survey prior to the screening. A coordinator on the Mobile BMD will also conduct an interview session with the patient before she proceeds to the BMD.
