Some radiologists specialize in mammography and breast imaging, which is who you see when you need a mammogram. A Radiologist can also determine if bones are broken or fractured after any kind of accident.

Excellent radiologist

Dr. Benson is one of the leaders in the U.S. in fetal diagnostic imaging. She is the one the top doctors at the Brigham turn to when they have a complicated case. The other review is correct insofar as she is very direct and not particularly warm in her delivery of worrisome news. But at the end of the day, I am willing to sacrifice the bedside manner for the accuracy of the diagnosis, and in Dr. Benson's case, she is the best in her field. She delivered bad news to me just yesterday but I feel lucky to have been able to have her do my imaging.
