Hallmark Health System Hematology and Oncology Center

Diagnostic Capabilities

A highly accurate, rapid diagnosis is the critical first step in healing. For that reason, Hallmark Health System offers a full range of diagnostic imaging.

Diagnostic capabilities include PET/CT scanning, MRI, ultrasound, digital mammography, nuclear medicine (including sentinel node procedures) and gastrointestinal procedures to detect cancer or precancerous conditions, tumors, or to assess the spread of the disease.

 PET/CT is conveniently located in the same building as the Hematology / Oncology Center. Our address is: Montvale PET/CT, Stoneham Outpatient Campus, 41 Montvale Ave., Stoneham, MA, 02180. Appointments are available Mon, Wed, Thurs and Fri. Call (866) 245-5995 to schedule an appointment.The combination of PET/CT scans in one image gives doctors the ability to precisely pinpoint where and how active a tumor might be. PET/CT enhances your physician's ability to develop a treatment plan that fits both the cancer and the patient.

If something abnormal is found on the mammogram, a biopsy may be required. A biopsy is the only way to know if cancer is present. The hospitals at Hallmark Health System perform several types of biopsies depending on the position and size of a suspicious lump: stereotactic biopsy; surgical biopsy; core needle biopsy; fine needle aspirations; as well as sentinel-node biopsies.
