Women have mixed feelings about breast health care.
They know these vital screening and diagnostic services are essential to their health. But they often dread the whole process and fear the results.
Southcoast Health System has created Southcoast Breast Imaging Centers, the region's most comprehensive network of breast health services that bring women the very latest in technology and equipment along with the comfort and reassurance of caring staff — available right in your own community.
This care includes just about any service you can find in a large medical center in Boston — including digital mammography, ultrasound, biopsies and complete evaluations — which can often all be scheduled in one convenient visit.
As part of the Southcoast Health System — the region's largest and most comprehensive health care network — we provide you with a seamless link to the three Southcoast Hospitals and a full range of medical specialties and ancillary services so you can experience enhanced quality in care. This includes the Southcoast Breast Center, a comprehensive program designed to help guide patients through the entire diagnosis process, step by step, if they receive an abnormal mammogram.
The Power of Digital Technology
Our imaging centers are 100 percent digital — a technology that provides high-resolution images that can be seen instantly — and manipulated for better views.
This means images are as clear and detailed as possible, helping physicians better pinpoint and treat any potential problems.
Our radiologists can enlarge an image, change the contrast, zoom in on small details and use computer-aided detection as a second pair of eyes looking at your mammogram.
Digital mammography offers:
- Lower radiation.
- High-resolution images.
- Greater accuracy.
- Instant, adjustable images.
- Fewer false positives.
- Computer-aided detection.
- Easy access, storage and retrieval.
- Greater comfort.
