Quality

"Whoever we are taking care of, that is our top priority...our focus is just one patient at a time."
Katherine Stockton, CT Technical Manager

"We operate at the cutting-edge of our field...Patients can be assured that they are going to get the most up-to-date, current approaches to medical imaging and image-guided intervention that are possible."
James A. Brink, MD, Radiologist-in-Chief, Mass General

"Digital breast tomosynthesis...can increase the numbers of cancers that we detect on a screening mammogram. Not only does it help me, as the breast imager, to see more cancer, but it helps me to see fewer things that are not cancer."
Bethany Niell, MD, PhD, Breast Radiologist, Mass General

Safety

"A lot of my patients have a lot of anxiety about X-ray exposure, so it is good to be able to say to them that our radiology staff have designed a way to deliver a much lower dose of radiation with a CT scan than many other places."
Susan Bennett, MD, Internal Medicine, Mass General

"Safety is our number-one priority...we have always worked hard in keeping our radiation doses as low as possible."
Dushyant Sahani, MD, Director of CT, Mass General

Access

"We are very careful to make sure that all of the community sites are up to the same standard as the General Hospital. The equipment is just as new, it's just as up-to-date."
Daniel Rosenthal, MD, Vice Chair, Radiology, Mass General
