Women who are in need of their yearly screening mammogram can get one at Advanced Shore Imaging Associates on Saturday, Oct. 23, 2021 from 8 am to noon by appointment. The free screenings are in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and thanks to a partnership between the imaging center and Shore Medical Center, a member of the Penn Medicine Cancer Network. The imaging center is located at 2605 Shore Road in Northfield.
A script or imaging order from a physician is necessary for the screening. Women who are unable to get a script can schedule a free clinical breast exam the week before the screening with Dr. Vijay Sandilya, Medical Director of Shore Cancer Center. Appointments for both the screening event and clinical breast exam can be scheduled by calling 609-653-3484.
This free screening event is primarily geared toward women who are uninsured or underinsured, but any woman who is eligible for a screening mammogram (40 or older, or younger with a family history of breast cancer and due for their mammogram) can participate. All imaging results will be read by Dr. Alicia Daniels, Director of Radiology for Shore Medical Center and Director of Women’s Imaging for Advanced Shore Imaging.
