Medical Arts Radiology Opens New Division: PURE Mammography

Have you heard? It’s now easier than ever to get a mammogram. Medical Arts Radiology is proud to announce the opening of the first screening mammography site located inside a Long Island mall - PURE Mammography at the Smith Haven Mall.

In an effort to make healthcare more convenient, we sought to make mammograms more easily accessible for women on Long Island. And thus, this new division of Medical Arts Radiology was born.  We truly feel that mammography should be as routine as shopping for clothes or food, so what better place than a shopping mall to add convenience to a potentially life-saving exam.

What sets our new division apart?
  • No need for referrals or prescriptions.
  • If previous screenings were performed outside our facility, the PURE staff will help obtain them for comparison.
  • Just like Medical Arts Radiology, PURE offers same-day mammograms with same-day results.
  • All mammograms are performed in 3D, an innovative new technique that detects more invasive breast cancers and reduces false positives by up to 40%.
  • There is no out of pocket expense for insured women and there are low cost exams for those without insurance.
  • Appointments are not necessary!
  • PURE mammography is accredited by the American College of Radiology and breast imaging specialists interpret all exams.  
  • Convenient mall location, following the same hours of operation: Monday through Saturday from 10am - 9:30pm and Sunday from 11am - 7pm.
Beyond the convenience, we’ve also focused on comfort. As Dr. Barry Morgenstern, Director of Breast Imaging at Medical Arts explained: “We’ve created a space that’s inviting, relaxing and comfortable. The experience includes a beautiful lounge area, warm robes, beverages, and a staff not only well trained in breast imaging but also in hospitality. We want women to feel like their next mammogram is more like a day at the spa.”

We don’t want busy work schedules, fear, or childcare to get in the way of a potentially life-saving exam. While we can’t prevent breast cancer, if we find it early enough we can save lives.

Medical Arts Radiology has served patients and referring physicians with the latest advances in diagnostic imaging for over 70 years. Seven of our nine convenient Long Island locations have dedicated Women’s Imaging Centers that combine physician expertise, state-of-the-art technology, and a patient-centered approach to care. These sites offer a complete array of women’s imaging services, including: 3D mammography, ultrasound, breast MRI, minimally invasive breast biopsy and DEXA bone density exams.
