Quincy Medical Center (QMC) patients have access to some of the most advanced imaging equipment available, including Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), advanced Positron Emission Tomography/Computer Tomography or PET/CT Scanning. In addition, our Vascular Laboratory is a multidisciplinary service offering leading edge, non-invasive diagnosis of vascular disorders.
These state-of-the-art imaging devices allow doctors to diagnose patients in a timely and effective manner.
Clinical oversight and reporting of diagnostic imaging services at QMC are performed by a team of medical professionals including members of Quincy Medical Center and the Boston University Radiology Associates. QMC’s chief of radiology leads a team of board-certified, fellowship-trained radiologists and nuclear medicine physicians skilled in musculoskeletal imaging, PET/CT imaging, neuroradiology, interventional radiology and diagnostic angiography.
The Simon C. Fireman Imaging Center for Women
The Simon C. Fireman Imaging Center for Women provides another service for the community and was created to offer women a comfortable, private atmosphere in which to undergo testing such as mammography, ultrasound and bone densitometry. Mammograms are reviewed by board-certified radiologists who specialize in women's imaging studies, and in most cases results are provided before patients leave QMC.
Quincy Medical Center recently added Breast MRI to its full complement of breast imaging capabilities. Using a powerful but harmless magnetic field and radio waves, this state-of-the-art technology enables physicians to detect developing diseases or abnormalities earlier than ever. Breast MRI should be used to evaluate women who have been diagnosed with cancer, to provide clarity if there is a questionable mammogram or ultrasound, or to screen women who are at high risk (greater than 20 percent) of developing cancer. In addition, women who have previously had breast cancer are eligible and should have an annual MRI in addition to a yearly mammogram. MRI is used to evaluate silicone breast implants and ruptures.
