PURE Mammography is Long Island’s premier site for mammogram screening. A division of Medical Arts Radiology, we pride ourselves on offering state-of-the-art 3D mammograms in a spa-like atmosphere. Located at the Smith Haven Mall, PURE is the first center of its kind located inside a shopping mall in New York. Our goal is simple: make potentially life-saving mammograms comfortable, convenient, and relaxing so that you never have a reason to miss your annual exam. With no appointment or prescription needed, women can enjoy the flexibility of same-day screening mammograms while shopping at the mall.
