Women's Imaging Center


Digital Mammography


Morton Hospital's Women's Imaging Center uses state-of-the-art digital mammography for early detection of breast cancer. All mammograms are administered by licensed, female mammography technologists and reviewed by board-certified radiologists.

Women who visit the our Women's Imaging Center during regular business hours can request the preliminary results of their mammograms before they leave. This takes a few extra minutes after the exam. The final results are forwarded to the patient's primary care physician, and a letter is sent to the patient's home explaining the results of the examination.


Hours of Operation


The Women's Imaging Center is open six days a week. If you have discovered a lump in your breast, you will be seen as quickly as possible. You can also have a screening mammogram done at our Southeast Health Center location, located at 511 West Grove Street, Suite 208 in Middleboro. Walk-ins are welcome at this location, or you can make an appointment by calling 508-828-7690.

Breast Ultrasound and Stereotactic Biopsy


Breast ultrasound is another technique used to evaluate breast health. Ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves to create a visual image of the breast, thereby allowing the radiologist to determine whether a lump is solid or a fluid-filled cyst.

Morton Hospital also has a stereotactic biopsy system. Morton's interventional radiologists use this minimally invasive equipment to perform core biopsies, a technique that may eliminate the need for more invasive surgery. The stereotactic system offers a safe, efficient alternative to surgery in appropriate candidates. A biopsy can be performed in the Women's Diagnostic Imaging Center under local anesthesia. With this needle technique, the process is less invasive, but still yields enough tissue to determine whether a breast lesion is benign or malignant. A computer helps guide the needle to the site of the lesion, where breast tissue is extracted. The result is less surgery for benign lesions and better surgical planning for malignancies.
