Sentara breast centers combine state-of-the-art technology, highly specialized practitioners who are among the best in their fields, and a uniquely collaborative and centralized model of care.
Sentara breast care patients benefit from full-time radiologists with fellowship training in breast imaging. All Sentara breast centers are also MQSA/FDA certified.
Patients receive personalized assistance from a patient navigator through every phase, including detailed and coordinated follow-up care.
All of the comprehensive breast centers are accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers. To gain the accreditation, the centers must follow a multidisciplinary team approach, provide access to clinical trial information and offer new treatment options, among other requirements.
The breast centers, along with Sentara Norfolk General Hospital Breast Center, are also among an elite group designated as an American College of Radiology Breast Imaging Center of Excellence. After rigorous evaluation of staff, equipment, physician credentials, technique and image quality, the centers are now fully accredited in the three major areas of breast imaging and cancer detection, mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy and ultrasound-guided biopsy.
