    Screen Test Mobile Digital Mammography -  Alberta Schedule

    Screen Test Program Information
    As a program of Alberta Health Services Cancer Screening Programs, Screen Test provides mammograms to approximately 24,000 Alberta women every year. Screen Test was launched in 1990 with two clinics – one in Edmonton and one in Calgary. The mobile mammography program started in 1991. Screen Test is a part of the Alberta Breast Cancer Screening Program (ABCSP).
    The two Screen Test mobile digital mammography units are 53-foot trailers providing services to over 100 communities each year with one providing services for southern Alberta and one providing services for northern Alberta. These trailers are “clinics on wheels” complete with a reception room, dressing rooms and an exam room. The mobiles are equipped with state of the art digital equipment and all services are provided on board the trailers.
    Target Population:
    • Women aged 50-74 who have no breast symptoms and have not had a breast cancer diagnosis
    • No new clinical breast symptoms
    • Last mammogram over 12 months ago
    • No breast cancer diagnosis within the last 3 years
    • A referral is not required for women over the age of 50
    • Women 40-49 need a referral for their first mammography appointment only. Screen Test does not screen women younger than 40
    • Women are strongly encouraged to book an appointment in advance as often clinics book up and walk-ins may not be accommodated
