3D Mammography by Lawrence General
As Lawrence General’s clinical spaces begin to open and expand their operating hours at Andover Medical Center, you are strongly encouraged to call your respective office to find out the latest hours of operation. Our team is working very hard to make sure all COVID-19 precautions are taken to protect your health and safety during your visit.
Lawrence General Hospital performs approximately 7,000 screening mammograms per year. Our new space at Andover Medical Center allows patients access to a full suite of comprehensive and licensed imaging procedures used to diagnose breast disease.
Lawrence General is the first center in the region to fully adopt 3D tomosynthesis at both its Andover and Lawrence breast imaging centers. 3D breast imaging provides better results, increased image quality and fewer false positives than tradition two dimensional technology.
A physician referral is not required for an annual screening mammogram. Please contact your insurance company if you have questions regarding coverage. To schedule your imaging appointment, please call 978-475-5213
The 3D mammography units are licensed by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health – Radiation Control Program
