Health support trucks are offering mammography and ultrasound exams in the Central-South and East Zones of Manaus. In total, the two mobile units should serve around 4 thousand people, according to the State Department of Health of Amazonas (SES-AM). Services began this Monday (1st).

The trucks are installed in the parking areas of Amazonas Shopping, on Avenida Djalma Batista, Chapada, Zona Centro-Sul, and Shopping São José, on Avenida Cosme Ferreira, São José Operário neighborhood, Zona Leste.

The service is aimed at patients who have already passed through the Basic Health Units (UBSs) and have authorization for referral from the Amazonas Regulatory Complex.

Services are provided from Monday to Friday, from 8am to 5pm.

Services in the Central-South and East Zones

At Amazonas Shopping, the mobile unit will operate until April 19th. The expectation is to receive approximately 1,700 patients, according to SES-AM.

At Shopping São José, the service will run until April 26th, and should benefit 2,200 already regulated patients.

In the case of mammography, the exam allows the early identification of changes suspected of cancer, which is important for the patient to begin treatment immediately, increasing the chances of a cure.

Ultrasonography, in turn, helps in the diagnosis of various diseases.
