3D Tomosynthesis Mammograms
We offer state-of-the-art technology in mammography including digital 3D tomosynthesis which offers the most accurate results.
A mammogram is an imaging tool used to take images of the breast tissue to look for abnormalities, including cancer. The American Cancer Society recommends annual mammograms starting at age 40.
3D tomosynthesis mammography is our standard. It allows our breast-certified radiologists are able to see greater detail and fine lines more clearly than a traditional 2D mammogram. Our radiologists will report their findings within one week to your primary care physician, gynecologist, oncologist or other members of your care team.
Our mammography facilities are licensed by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and accredited by the American College of Radiology.
Same-day, next-day, evening and Saturday appointments are available for screening mammograms, please call 781-338-7111 to schedule and for more information.
If You’re Called Back for Additional Views
A routine screening mammogram consists of several images of each breast. The radiologist who reads your mammogram may need additional views with a slightly different angle or position to clear up any questions.
If it is determined you need to have additional views we will contact you directly to set up an appointment at the MelroseWakefield Breast Health Center. Many women are cleared by a diagnostic mammogram and require no additional testing until their next screening mammogram.
