MetroWest Medical Center Now Offering 3D Mammography Services

Aug 15, 2018

Framingham, MA – August 15, 2018 ― MetroWest Medical Center is now offering 3D mammography services at its Wellness Center and within the hospital.

3D Mammography machineAccording to the American Cancer Society, 3D mammograms have some advantages over standard digital mammograms. For this mammogram, a machine takes many low-dose x-rays as it moves over the breast. The images taken can be combined into a 3-dimensional picture, which may allow doctors to see inside the breast more clearly than with a standard 2-view mammogram, and possibly find more cancers.

“We are very proud to have this advanced service available to the citizens of Framingham and surrounding communities,” said Dr. Drew Harding, Interim CEO and Chief Nursing Officer of MetroWest Medical Center. “It has been shown that one out of every 8 women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. By adding 3D mammography to our list of services, we hope to make early detection more convenient for women in our area.”

At Framingham Union Hospital, 3D mammograms can be scheduled on Mondays, Thursdays or Fridays between 7:45am and 4:15pm as well as on Tuesdays or Wednesdays from 7:45am to 7:30pm. At the MetroWest Medical Center Wellness Center, 3D mammograms can be scheduled Mondays through Thursdays between 7:45am and 7:30pm and on Fridays from 7:45am to 4:15pm.
