Request an appointment for a mammogram.

The American Cancer Society recommends a baseline mammogram at age 40 and an annual mammogram thereafter. Some women are at greater risk for breast cancer and may require earlier or more frequent imaging. Women ages 35-39 are also eligible for one baseline mammogram screening, which is covered by most insurance. Because some cancers are not visible on mammograms, monthly self-examination and an annual breast exam by a physician are important for early cancer detection.

Our 2D/3D digital mammography is supplemented when necessary by ultrasound, breast MRI, and other imaging. Diagnosis of most breast problems can be made with stereotactic or ultrasound-guided biopsy — an accurate and less invasive method that is available at the Hermel Breast Health Center in Concord. Staff members provide personal attention, technical expertise and follow-through during and after your examination.

If patients are identified as a high risk for developing breast cancer based on personal and family history, they can benefit from our high-risk screening program.

Breast Biopsy and Other Diagnostic Imaging

If abnormal findings are noted on breast imaging, we perform targeted biopsies including 2D and 3D mammography, ultrasound and MRI.
If cancer is diagnosed, sophisticated methods of imaging can reduce the need for exploratory surgery and help cancer specialists develop individualized treatment plans for patients. The Mass General Cancer Center at Emerson Hospital – Bethke offers advanced diagnostic imaging services, including:
  • Bone scans
  • Computer-assisted tomography (CT)
  • Fine needle aspiration
  • 3D/2D Mammography
  • Breast MRI
  • Image-guided biopsies
  • Ultrasound
  • Specific tumor-seeking scans
  • PET/CT (positron emission tomography/computer-assisted tomography)

Nationally Accredited BREAST Health CENTER

NAPBC logoThe National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a quality program administered by the American College of Surgeons, has granted accredited status to Emerson's Hermel Breast Health Center. To achieve voluntary NAPBC accreditation, a breast center demonstrates compliance with the NAPBC standards that address a center’s leadership, clinical services, research, community outreach, professional education, and quality improvement for patients. Breast centers seeking NAPBC accreditation undergo a site visit every three years.
