About Imaging Services on Wang 2

Mass General Imaging provides these services to patients on the second floor of Wang:

What to Expect: Breast Imaging

You may notice some changes when you arrive on Wang 2 for imaging services:

  • Plan to arrive 10 to 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment. For your safety, we are not seating patients in the waiting area at this time.
  • While waiting to enter the breast imaging suite, please stand on one of the floor markings we've spaced out for physical distancing. 
  • When you arrive at your appointment location, our staff will greet you at the front door.
  • Next, we will check you in at the front desk. During this time, we will ask you questions to screen for COVID-19 symptoms.
  • After check-in, a patient escort will give you a wristband and take you directly to the mammography room for imaging. If you have to wait at all during this time, we will guide you to the outer waiting room.
  • In the mammography room, we will ask you to change into hospital attire.
  • After the exam, you can change back into your street clothes. Your technologist will then escort you out of the breast imaging suite.
  • Once you leave, hospital staff fully cleans the exam room to prepare it for the next patient. We also clean any waiting room chairs, doors or other areas a patient may have touched during a visit. 

What to Expect: MRI and X-ray

  • When you get off the elevator for an X-ray, you will check in at a desk outside the imaging suite. If you're coming in for an MRI, we will direct you to the MRI check-in desk inside the imaging suite. We have placed markings on the floor to create physical distancing. 
  • During check-in, we will ask you some questions to screen for symptoms of COVID-19.
  • If you need to change into hospital attire for your exam, we will walk you to the changing area. We continuously clean the changing areas with a hospital-approved disinfectant.
  • Most people will not need to wait.  If you are asked to wait prior to your exam, please be aware that chairs are spaced apart and cleaned between every patient.
  • For your safety, before we bring you into the exam room, we clean the entire room including the equipment with a hospital-approved disinfectant.
