The most advanced imaging technologies
The Breast Health Center offers leading-edge technologies to improve early detection and treatment of breast cancer. Breast tomosynthesis is the latest breakthrough in mammography and was pioneered at Massachusetts General Hospital. Also called 3D mammography, it provides a clearer, more accurate view of the breast and enables doctors to pinpoint the size, shape and location of abnormalities more effectively. A complement to standard mammograms, it can result in fewer callbacks, better detection and greater peace of mind.
If a patient is diagnosed with cancer, our multidisciplinary team of breast cancer experts works together to develop and implement a personalized care plan. Depending on the stage and other characteristics of a patient’s cancer, treatment may include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy or a combination of these therapies. Members of the care team meet with patients regularly and communicate frequently with their referring physician to ensure seamless coordination of care. Our patients have access to the Mass General/North Shore Cancer Center and to the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center if they need additional care.
