New on MyHealth: Schedule Routine Mammograms

| Posted On Jul 30, 2018 | By:

Atrius Health is excited to announce a convenient new way for patients with a MyHealth Online account to schedule their routine mammogram through the MyHealth secure website or the MyChart mobile app for Apple and Android devices. This new capability allows you real-time access to directly book an available appointment.

Atrius Health offers digital 2D mammography at our Boston (Kenmore), Dedham, Chelmsford, Somerville and Weymouth locations and digital 3D mammography (tomosynthesis) at our Boston (Kenmore), Dedham, and Weymouth locations. Both types of mammography have been shown to be beneficial for the early detection of breast cancer. 3D mammography is a series of x-rays of each breast which decreases the overlap of tissue when viewed. This examination takes a few minutes longer compared to 2D mammography.

You should consider 3D mammography if:

If you have difficulty holding your breath for up to 30 seconds or are unable to stand still for up to 30 seconds, 2D mammography may be preferable.

If you do not find an appointment that meets your needs or you are not sure if you should schedule a digital 2D or a digital 3D mammogram, please call the imaging/radiology department at your preferred location.

To schedule an appointment through the MyHealth secure website, log in and click on the “Schedule An Appointment” icon on the home page or the “Schedule an Appointment” link under the “Appointments” section. To schedule an appointment using the MyChart app, log in and click on the “Appointment” icon on the app home page and next, click the “Schedule An Appointment” banner at the bottom of the page.
