The Women's Pavilion is an unprecedented assembly of the newest technology, along with a highly skilled team of many of the brightest, most experienced women's health professionals in New England. On the fourth floor of the Hill Health Center at Milford Regional, the facility offers many fine services, but is first and foremost a stellar diagnostic center dedicated to the accurate and compassionate diagnosis and treatment of women in Central Massachusetts.
The Women's Pavilion began as the vision of one female physician who had experienced breast cancer. Since its opening in 1996, The Women's Pavilion has grown into a unique resource where women can access the most advanced technology without sacrificing their humanity. Through a specialized multidisciplinary team, which includes radiologists, gynecologists, obstetricians, surgeons and oncologists, the mission of treating women with commitment, compassion and respect is accomplished daily.
Our team is committed to quick and accurate mammography results and prompt scheduling of biopsies, whenever test results indicate further investigation. The Women's Pavilion team is dedicated to providing clear information and helping each woman choose which option is right for her.
The most up-to-date diagnostics in mammography – digital mammography – is offered at The Women’s Pavilion. This leading-edge technology captures the x-ray beams and stores the information directly onto a computer, allowing the radiologist to adjust the brightness and contrast, and zoom in for closer inspection of specific areas on the screen. Digital images can also be easily accessed for consultations and comparative studies. As an added measure of protection, radiologists utilize a computer-aided detection (CAD) system which provides a computerized second review of mammograms.
With convenient morning, evening and weekend hours, mammograms can be scheduled to fit your schedule! Remember, screening mammograms do not need a physician referral. Learn more about our mammography services.
Breast biopsy technology continues to advance dramatically and The Women’s Pavilion team is dedicated to the most accurate and least invasive technology available. While we still offer needle localization and core biopsies where they are indicated, we increasingly offer stereotactic breast biopsies (the least invasive option that can accurately diagnose breast cancer at its earliest – and most treatable – stages). We also offer MRI-guided breast biopsy if the radiologist determines it is the best option. These biopsy methods minimize the need for more invasive surgical procedures.
Imagine viewing your yet-to-be-born baby as though he/she is being held in your arms! 4D (or real-time 3D) images such as these are now possible at The Women’s Pavilion through the very latest in ultrasound technology. Ultrasound serves as a diagnostic tool for obstetric, pelvic, uterine, ovarian, breast, abdominal and bladder areas. The unprecedented image quality and sensitivity of 3D/4D ultrasound helps visualize abnormalities sooner, leading to earlier detection and treatment for patients.
