To make mammography as accessible as possible to women throughout the greater Denver area, University of Colorado Health has invested in a mobile mammography unit known as the Pink Life Saver. While the bus has a regular rotation, it also occasionally makes special stops at various neighborhood locations. Individuals can even request stops at their workplace. The schedule is accessible on the UCHealth website (www.uchealth.org) or by calling (720) 848-1604.
The Pink Life Saver brings to patients state-of-the-art digital imaging technology with high levels of diagnostic accuracy, as well as a dedicated team of skilled and compassionate professionals. The bus has three-dimensional mammogram technology, which detects invasive breast cancer 40 percent sooner than traditional methods. In addition, this technology results in fewer false positives.
The Pink Life Saver was made possible by funding from Men for the Cure, Summit Bodyworks, and King Soopers.
