One woman gets diagnosed with breast cancer every 4 minutes in India, and one woman dies of breast cancer every 13 minutes, making it the most prevalent cancer among Indian women. Early detection can not only improve the outcome but can remarkably cut down the costs of treatment and Sohana Hospital Mohali has become the first private hospital in the region to launch a digital Mammography bus at their premises. The state-of-the-art mobile mammography bus is equipped with the web-based reporting system of ALLENGERS making the diagnosis, reporting and sending reports to patients online easy. This system is upgraded to artificial intelligence based detection system.

Sohana Hospital wants to make screening for breast cancer easily accessible to women aged 40 and above in tricity at the convenience of their doorstep. The inauguration was done by Bhai Davinder Singh, Chairman of Shri Guru Harkrishan Sahib (E) Eye Hospital Trust, Sohana. Also present on the occasion were Bhai Gurmeet Singh, Secretary of the trust and Dr Gagandeep Singh, CEO of Sohana Hospital Mohali.“One will not need to visit the hospital for getting breast cancer screening anymore. The mammography bus will visit at multiple places in tricity and peripheral areas and objective is to detect breast cancer at an early stage. 

The aim is to screen over 5000 women through the mobile unit this year free of cost,” said Gurmeet Singh, Secretary of the Shri Guru Harkrishan Sahib (E) Eye Hospital Trust, Sohana.The set-up of the mobile mammography van is very similar to what is found in any clinic. In addition to the mammography equipment and workstation for the radiology technologist, there is a small waiting area, washroom, and a simple check-in process. Dr. Sandeep Kukkar, Senior Consultant, Medical Oncology, Sohana Hospital Mohali said that recent studies had found that cancer cases are on a rise in tricity as compared to metro cities like Mumbai and New Delhi.  

An increase in weight, lack of exercise, hormone replacement therapy, the combined oral contraceptive pill, stress, and probably late work shifts are some factors that increase the risk of breast cancer. The mammography bus has one specialist oncologist along with Technical staff for real time diagnosis of Breast Cancer.”Speaking on the occasion, Lalit Sharma, General Manager – S&M said, “The mobile Mammography Bus will be on the go throughout the week including Sundays. Initially, the objective is to screen tricity women in association with various RWAs, NGOs and corporates in the area. Sohana Hospital has a pledge to screen every strata of women against breast cancer and nip it in the bud.”
