Sentara RMH Mammography Services
One in seven women will develop breast cancer during her lifetime. A mammogram, which is an X-ray of the breast, is the best way to find cancer of the breast in its earliest stages—up to two years before it can be felt or other symptoms appear. If breast cancer is detected early, 90 percent of women can be treated successfully.
At the Sentara RMH Funkhouser Women’s Center, we offer digital mammography, the latest technology in women’s healthcare. Digital mammography is available at the Funkhouser Women’s Center and on our Mobile Health Services van, the first mobile unit in the nation to be equipped with the full-field GE digital mammography unit.
