Laboratory services: MIT Medical’s clinical laboratory can do tests ordered by providers at MIT Medical or elsewhere—including standing orders, blood panels, urinalysis, and that fasting blood cholesterol test you’ve been putting off for months. Most tests are offered on a walk-in basis every weekday from 8:30 a.m.–5:30 p.m. Most results are available within 24–48 hours and can be sent to healthcare providers off campus. No copay; clinical order required.
Mammography: Have your mammogram done on MIT Medical’s high-tech, digital 3D mammography system that creates a three-dimensional rendering of the entire breast. In addition to providing greater accuracy in locating abnormalities, the clarity of the image means fewer callbacks for biopsies or additional tests, since areas that might be deemed “suspicious” on a conventional mammogram can be seen as benign in 3D. Make an appointment by calling 617-253-4905. No copay; no referral required.
