    Patient undergoing a mammogram.Lahey's Breast Imaging Center is committed to providing the most compassionate and technologically advanced care to all of our patients. Working closely with the specialists at Lahey's Breast Center, we make sure each woman is evaluated individually and that further breast care is customized to her needs and the findings on her breast studies.

    Progressive imaging technologies such as 3-D Mammography, Breast MRI and PET scanning are currently available at Lahey to help supplement mammography and ultrasound. With the help of these leading edge technologies, clinicians can often provide faster and more accurate results to patients.

    In addition, Lahey offers patients the Cancer Risk Assessment (CRA) app at the time of their screening mammogram appointment. The CRA app can establish a patient’s lifetime risk for developing breast cancer.

    Importance of Annual Screening

    Screening mammography is recommended annually for women age 40 and over. Screening annually has proven to decrease breast cancer mortality and allows for less aggressive treatment options by finding cancer earlier.

    Following the annual appointment, Lahey will notify and provide information for women with dense breast tissue. Women with dense breast tissue, which is nearly 50 percent of women, may have an increased risk of developing cancer.
