Imaging Services combines the latest techniques for non-invasive imaging studies with compassionate patient care. Our radiologists are board certified and hold academic appointments at Harvard Medical School. Whether you're coming for your first diagnostic
scan or are receiving image-guided therapy, the staff in our Imaging Services department is devoted to making your medical imaging experience as comfortable as possible.
The Department of Imaging at Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women's Cancer Center combines the latest imaging techniques with state-of-the-art scanning equipment and expert staff. Our radiologists, technologists, and nurses are experienced in performing and
reading cancer-related imaging studies. They're also compassionate and understanding, because they know how intimidating some of the testing and technology can be.
We aim to make your imaging experience a positive one. We do our best to ensure that you don't feel rushed into or out of our facility, that you feel safe, and that all of your questions and needs are given full attention. We work hard to keep to schedule
and minimize your waiting time.

care, and innovation using state-of-the-art technology.
Dana-Farber-based radiologists use a disease-centric approach, which includes whole-body and multi-modality interpretations that are very valuable to our clinicians. We adhere to the highest safety and quality standards and operate under cost-effective
and efficient practices.
Our clinical services include:
- Digital radiography
- Nuclear medicine
- Therapy with unsealed sources

Some of our clinical services are also provided throughout the Dana-Farber network, including satellite sites and community-based services in the Greater Boston area with our

breast imaging services at Whittier Street Health Center.
Our physics, technical, and medical experts routinely collaborate in a multidisciplinary "Triad" committee to optimize clinical, quality, and safety standards, in addition to developing multimodality approaches and protocols.
