This means we offer a comprehensive range of services and take a team approach to breast care. Our doctors and scientists are leaders in cancer care who will work together to develop a treatment plan personalized just for you.
Our radiologists have a high level of special training in breast imaging. They excel in detecting cancer at the earliest stage possible. The American College of Radiology has named UVA Health a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence — the gold standard in medical imaging.
In addition, we have a program especially for patients at high risk for breast or ovarian cancer. Through services like genetic counseling and testing, we can help you lower your cancer risk. And if we do find cancer, we can treat it sooner.
