ASHLAND, Ky. – Because it is so important to detect breast cancer in its earliest stages, King’s Daughters Medical Center no longer requires a physician order for screening mammography.
A physician order is required for diagnostic exams: those ordered in follow-up to an abnormal screening. Specially trained mammography technologists use digital equipment, which results in less radiation exposure, to perform all tests.
Mobile mammography appointments are available between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. To schedule an appointment, please call (606) 408-2742 or toll free 1-877-304-1935.
