Patient Care in 3D

Mass General offers state-of-the-art 3D views of advanced imaging exams in order to create precise, anatomical visualizations of the body and assist radiologists in diagnostic interpretation to improve patient care.

When referring physicians request 3D imaging from Mass General, they receive valuable information to support treatment planning with no added demand on a patient's time during an exam. 

Our dedicated, full-time team is specially trained to generate 3D views using protocols tailored to the clinical needs of over 45 types of exams. These protocols were developed over ten years in conjunction with subspecialists in the Mass General Department of Radiology.

The 3D Imaging Lab processes 3D views for:

  • over 100 exams per day for Mass General and its associated imaging centers
  • over 100 exams per month for seven hospitals in four states via our Tele3D Service

In total, we have processed 3D views for over 300,000 exams since the service was established in 1999.
