Northfield Hospital’s Diagnostic Imaging department now offers Breast MRI, an additional tool to help with early detection of breast cancer.
In the past, patients who needed this exam were forced to travel to other medical centers. With the new MRI that was installed earlier this year, breast care patients now can have their MRIs performed at Northfield Hospital.

Research shows that important development takes place for a baby’s brain and lungs during the last few weeks of pregnancy. Yet according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), early elective deliveries — which include inductions and planned Cesarean sections that are not medically necessary — still account for 10 to 15 percent of all deliveries nationally.
