Experience Convenient Access to State-of-the-art Digital Mammography at Boston Medical 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.
Designated as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology, BMC's Belkin Breast Imaging Center offers state-of-the-art full field digital mammography. Our expert radiologic technologists are fully trained, licensed and nationally certified in mammography and are committed to your exceptional care. Walk-ins are welcome. Please schedule your yearly mammogram by calling 617.414.9729 today.
Programs and Services
Diagnostics and Tests
A mammogram is an x-ray of the breast that uses a small amount of radiation. A technologist will position your breast for the test. The breast will be compressed between two plates, and a picture will be taken.
Magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, uses magnets and radio waves to make very precise cross-sectional pictures of the body. For breast MRI, you will lay face-down in a narrow tube with openings for your breasts.
Ultrasound uses sound waves to produce an outline of part of the body. A computer picks up the echoes from the sound waves and uses them to generate a picture on the computer screen.
