Architecture for Radiology Receives New Women's Center Design Commission

Architecture for Radiology (the only architecture firm in the world focused exclusively on radiology design and construction) is pleased to announce that it has been selected to design a new women's center in Westchester County, NY.

The project includes multiple women's center modalities including the design and construction of rooms for ultrasound, bone densitometry, digital mammography and stereotactic biopsy. In addition, the women's center will have typical support space such as dressing rooms, offices, reception and waiting.

The project will be designed to complement the professional and caring approach of the radiologists behind this new, state-of-the-art women's center.
