ScanVan Mobile Mammography


Last year, 4 out of every 10 uninsured women did not receive a mammogram.

ScanVan is the country's first mobile mammography and radiology clinic for homeless and uninsured adults. ScanVan provides clinical breast exams, mammograms, tuberculosis (TB) tests, and health education to homeless and low-income men and women. We visit homeless shelters, drop-in centers, and street-side locations in all five boroughs of New York City.
