  • St. Mary's Mobile Mammogram on Campus - May 7

    HR is announcing the St. Mary’s Mobile Digital Mammography Unit on-campus in room HP 1041.  Please call the number below to set up your appointment directly with St. Mary’s Breast Center. Inform them that you are a USI employee or spouse of an employee making an appointment for the day below.


    University of Southern Indiana

    Thursday, May 7, 2015 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

    St. Mary’s Mobile Digital Mammography Unit will be ON-CAMPUS in HP 1041

    To schedule an appointment for your mammogram call 812-485-4437

    You do not need a physician’s order. Women with implants can have a digital mammogram.  Mammograms are normally covered under all insurance plans and your insurance carrier will be billed for these services.  It is always a good idea to check with your insurance company first before scheduling. 

    USI employees and their spouse on the USI Anthem medical plan have screening  mammogram coverage. The time span in-between annual screenings does not have to be exactly one year plus a day from the date of your last screening.  However, you are only allowed one mammogram screening under your wellness benefit per calendar year.

    Digital mammography works in the same way as traditional mammograms but instead of capturing images on x-ray film, which has to be developed, images are captured digitally and immediately sent to a computer monitor.  This allows our radiologist to manipulate the image’s brightness, contrast and magnification to help detect any cancer that may be present.  Patient accesses to this technology, through the availability of a mobile unit, will allow us to provide the best technology available to women who may not otherwise have access to this technology.

    St. Mary’s Breast Center also offers the advantage of having a dedicated Breast Radiologist, Dr. Charles Lackey, on site at all times.  Dr. Lackey is a Board-Certified Breast Radiologist, who is extensively trained in breast health, completed a breast fellowship at Washington University, St. Louis, and continues to study breast imaging extensively.  Dr. Lackey will carefully examine all the images obtained and a letter will be mailed with the results on the next business day.
