For Immediate Release (05/11/09)

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 outpatient radiology center, within a prominent community health center, in Boston, MA.

The project includes radiology planning and radiology room design of multiple radiology modalities including ultrasound room design, digital mammography room design and digital radiography room design. In addition, there is a separate women's center will have typical support space such as dressing rooms, offices, reception and waiting.
