Our new Women's Imaging Center, located
at UMass Memorial at Southborough, 28 Newton Street, Southborough is now open,
offering women's diagnostic services.
An important component of the premier Marlborough Hospital Women's Imaging
Center, mammography services provide women with unparalleled access to screening
and testing procedures. Appointments for routine digital mammograms are
currently being scheduled within four weeks.
To supplement digital mammography, the Women's Imaging Center also uses
digital computer-aided detection (CAD). Digital CAD scans mammogram images and
flags abnormalities to help the radiologist detect early breast problems. The
technology is often referred to as a "second set of eyes" assisting the
radiologist. Extensive studies have proven the CAD system improves breast cancer
detection rates by up to 10 percent.
For patients requiring further diagnostic tests, the Women's Imaging
Center also offers breast ultrasounds, stereotactic breast biopsies and bone
density screening for osteoporosis. For patients requiring breast MRIs,
follow-up care is provided at Marlborough Hospital.
Marlborough Hospital's affiliation with UMass Memorial Medical Center and its
Comprehensive Breast Center gives
patients access to the latest research and treatment for breast cancer.
