Our Center of Excellence
The Lawrence + Memorial Hospital Breast Imaging Department at the Main Campus and our satellite facilities in Waterford, Groton, Old Saybrook and Stonington are designated American College of Radiology (ACR) Breast Imaging Center of Excellence. The Breast Center received this prestigious award for our outstanding personnel and use of state-of-the-art equipment for:
- Stereotactic breast biopsy
- Breast ultrasound
- Ultrasound-guided breast biopsy
The ACR is a national organization serving more than 32,000 diagnostic and interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, and nuclear medicine and medical physicists. Its programs focus on medical imaging, radiation oncology and the delivery of comprehensive health care services. There are several reasons to choose L+M Breast Imaging Center of Excellence for your yearly mammogram:
L+M pioneers and leaders in cross training highly skilled, highly qualified mammographers to perform breast ultrasounds, thus providing a unique continuity of care. Diagnostic results are provided at the time of the exam.
Breast Ultrasound recommended after a DX Mammogram: provided at the same time — eliminating another appointment with results given at time of appointment.
