    Advanced Breast ImagingBICOE

    We provide the most advanced screening and diagnostic imaging methods, which include: 

    • Screening mammograms
    • Breast tomosynthesis (3-D mammography)
    • Digital mammography with computer-assisted detection (CAD)
    • Breast ultrasound
    • Breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
    • Combined (PET/CT) scanning (at our Burlington location)

    3D mammography is the latest technology and an important tool for women with dense breast tissue, which is nearly 50 percent of women. Dense breast tissue makes it more difficult to spot cancer on conventional mammograms. 3-D mammography not only offers superior screening and exceptionally sharp breast images, it provides great diagnostic accuracy around cancer detection.

    Mammography at the Lahey Medical Center, Peabody, is available these hours:

    • Monday and Tuesday, 8am–7:30pm
    • Wednesday and Thursday, 8am–5pm
    • Friday, 8am–4pm
