Women have come to understand the importance of regular mammograms for the early detection of breast cancer. Although breast cancer is not a common occurrence in men, mammography has also become an important tool to evaluate men with breast lumps. Having a mammogram is now easier than ever at Quincy medical Center’s Women’s Imaging Center, which is dedicated exclusively to breast imaging and evaluation of bone density.
Our wide range of services includes all digital screening mammography, diagnostic mammography, breast ultrasound and interventional procedures, including needle localization and minimally invasive stereotactic breast biopsy, breast MRI services, and bone densitometry.
Qualified - Our highly trained and qualified staff offers patients greater confidence. Our radiologists are ACR board certified. Our technologists are ARRT registered, state licensed, and certified by the Department of Public Health in Mammography. Our qualifications are your peace of mind.
Committed - We know that waiting for mammogram results is stressful. That’s why we are committed to getting your results to you as quickly as possible. Having prior mammograms for comparison greatly increases a radiologist’s ability to pick up very early breast cancers, and having your previous films available to us before your mammogram enables us to render an accurate interpretation promptly, usually within 48 hours. If your previous mammograms were done elsewhere, we ask you to provide them in advance of your appointment or we will be happy to obtain the films for you. Simply sign a medical release form and mail it back to us.
Compassionate - Knowing how and when you will receive your results may ease your anxiety. If your results are negative, you will receive a prompt letter from the Breast Imaging Center.
If you need additional evaluation, we will call you and help you schedule what is needed. Of course, your doctor receives an official detailed report of your mammogram as well.
