Sentara's comprehensive breast program is a multidisciplinary program with specialized expertise in timely cancer screening, diagnosis, treatment and supportive care throughout your cancer journey. We use a team-based approach from diagnosis and treatment for seamless, individualized, coordinated care. Led by our experienced, highly-trained breast cancer specialists, our breast centers offer advanced medical and surgical treatments, expert pathology and genetic testing, access to innovative clinical trials, a full range of support services and integrative therapies.
Our centers use 3D mammography, which represents one of the most significant advances in breast cancer screening. Tomosynthesis technology, also known as a 3D mammogram, allows radiologists to see cancer more easily and sooner. It can also be particularly useful for detecting cancer in women at high risk of developing breast cancer, including those with family history or dense breast tissue.
