CareMore Health has partnered with Invision Diagnostics to bring their 3D mobile mammogram bus to the Asheville Care Center to provide a convenient and quick means for women to get this critically important health screening.

“Often times, the reason women put off having a mammogram is due to time constraints and fear,” said Dr. Kiragu, medical officer for CareMore Health in North Carolina. “We are striving to take both those barriers out of the equation to enable more women in our community to get this important screening. These 3D mammograms can be done in 15 minutes and by making it a fun Halloween event, we are hoping to alleviate some of the anxiety.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in eight women are diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Early detection is key to a positive outcome.

In addition to private mammogram screenings, CareMore Health will have some fun treats and giveaways.

The only requirements to receive a 3D mammogram include: must have some type of health insurance, be a female 35 years and older, not had a mammogram in the last year, not pregnant or breastfeeding and must have a primary care provider to send the results.

To schedule your mammogram with Invision Diagnostics, visit and enter zip code 28803 to find the CareMore Health event in Asheville. You do not have to be a patient of CareMore Health to attend this event.
