Breast Care

Sentara provides our female patients with a combination of breast health care services and experts, including mammography screening, breast health navigators and surgical options for breast surgery.


We provide self-referral screening mammography services both onsite and on location with our mobile health services van. The latest mammographic technology, tomosynthesis (3D mammography), is now available at various locations. Our 3D mammography sites include Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center, Sentara Lake Ridge, Sentara Lorton Station Women’s Imaging Center, Sentara Ultrasound Associates and the SNVMC mammography van.

If you’re age 40 or older, it’s recommended that you have an annual mammogram. To schedule your mammogram, call 703-523-1560.

Breast Imaging

In addition to mammography, we also provide various women’s imaging services including breast ultrasound, MRI, and MRI, stereotactic and ultrasound-guided breast biopsies.

Breast Cancer Treatment

When a woman has received a diagnosis of breast cancer, she has the option of seeing a dedicated breast surgeon with Sentara. The surgeon provides consultation, follow-up and surgical services as needed for women who have benign or malignant breast conditions.
