Our breast imaging services include screening and diagnostic mammography, ultrasound, and biopsies utilizing ultrasound and stereotactic techniques. 3-D tomosynthesis mammograms are available at Lawrence General Hospital (LGH)
. We employ computer-aided detection (CAD) on all our mammograms to help identify areas of abnormal density, mass, or calcification.
Our breast imagers all have years of experience, and we as a group do hundreds of breast biopsies every year. We meet regularly with pathologists, oncologists, and surgeons to discuss current cases.
Breast MRI, with the capability of providing MR-guided biopsies, is available at LGH.
Dr. Betty Rafferty
, formerly the head of the Avon Breast Center at Massachusetts General Hospital, is the Director of Breast Imaging. She has a particular interest in tomosynthesis.
