Specialty Clinics

Interventional Radiology

Boston Medical Center's Interventional Radiology physicians are committed to providing comprehensive care. Working in a multidisciplinary, collaborative environment, the interventional radiologists and team of specialized physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and nurses ensure the best patient care in the New England region.

Breast Imaging Center

If you are a woman over 40, yearly breast health screenings are an important part of a healthy routine. Mammography is the single most effective method to detect breast changes, long before physical symptoms can be seen or felt. Yearly mammograms can detect cancer early, providing you with more treatment options and a chance for a full recovery.

Diagnostic Radiology

The Diagnostic Radiology department is a full service, academic medical imaging department for both adult and pediatric patients. A team of licensed and ARRT registered technologists accommodate patients imaging needs. The department houses the most sophisticated medical imaging technology to quickly deliver accurate electronic images to referring physicians. The enhanced digital imaging has many advantages over traditional x-ray units including providing a more detailed image with lower radiation dose in a shorter amount of time in a comfortable and compassionate setting.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

This test uses a magnetic field, radiofrequency pulses, and a computer to produce detailed images of body structures in multiple planes. Some people may need an IV put in place so caregivers can inject a contrast solution into their veins. This depends on the exam the doctor has ordered. MRI is a more detailed tool than x-ray and ultrasound and for certain organs or areas of the body, it provides better images than CT.

Radiology Film Library

BMC’s Radiology Film Library is readily available to fill film and CD requests. They are open Monday-Friday 7:00 AM-5:00 PM.

When a patient arrives at the Radiology Department in Menino, Moakley or Shapiro, they will be directed by a patient access staff member to the front desk to fill out a film request form. Please complete this form and bring it with you to save time at your appointment. Once the completed form is handed in and a request for a librarian is made, the librarian will process the request. Patients must bring ID so that the librarian can properly identify the patient with the CD requested. The CD will take up to 30 minutes to be prepared. If request is given on the weekend, it will take a business day. If a patient does not want to wait, the images can be mailed.

Research Overview

The Department of Radiology at Boston Medical Center is affiliated with the Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM). To learn about the department’s research activities, please visit the Radiology section of the BUSM website.
