Hawthorn Medical Women’s Imaging Center is the first in the Southcoast area to offer patients the latest 3D technology for clinically superior mammograms with exceptionally sharp images. This technology allows the doctor to see a series of detailed breast images for layer-by-layer evaluation. This increases breast cancer detection by 41%, reduces false positive callbacks, and gives radiologists more confidence in their results. To schedule an appointment, call 508-961-0855.
