Mobile Mammography Units

On the occasion of World Cancer Day, a new mobile mammography unit was launched in Bangalore. This is a joint venture between Narayana Hospitals and is partly supported by the Nilekani family.  This is the second functional unit in the city and it will help in spreading Breast Cancer Awareness. Similar units are functional in Delhi, Mumbai, Goa and UP.

These units not only help in conducting mammograms, which help in early detection of lesions but also create awareness regarding breast cancer by distributing educational material and training women to carry out breast self examination. With the increasing incidence of breast cancer, more mobile units are required in the country to reach out to the masses.

  1. Hello,
    My name is Jayshri Rami. Can you give me some more info on the mammo mobile unit as our hospital is trying to purchase one in Gujarat, India. We are trying to bring breast cancer awareness in the area and doing as many camps as possible but so much of India’s population is rural it would be easier to go to them by having a mobile unit. Please send details via email.
    Thank you,
    Jayshri Rami
