Medical Imaging of Fredericksburg, LLC plans to launch the Imaging Center for Women at North Stafford this summer. The new center will be adjacent to the imaging group’s Medical Imaging Center of North Stafford, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary of providing advanced imaging services to northern Stafford and southern Prince William counties.
The women’s center will offer advanced breast cancer screening services including breast tomosynthesis studies, which are also known as 3D mammograms, DEXA bone density scans, and breast ultrasound, announced Edwin Swager, CEO of Radiologic Associates of Fredericksburg (RAF). RAF’s board-certified, fellowship-trained breast imaging specialists will interpret test results and supervise imaging studies.
“Although the region has other mammography providers, our internal analysis shows the area is still underserved,” Swager noted.
The new Imaging Center for Women at North Stafford will encourage more women to take advantage of screenings for detecting breast cancer in its earliest, most treatable, stages. It will be in a specially designed suite next to Medical Imaging of North Stafford at 125 Woodstream Blvd., Suite 109, Stafford, VA 22556. The building is located near State Route 610 and close to the I-95 corridor that so many residents use to commute to work in the Washington, DC, metro area.
The new center will be an extension of the Imaging Center for Women located in Fredericksburg, one of the most renowned and comprehensive women’s imaging facilities in the state. The centers are operated by Medical Imaging of Fredericksburg, a joint partnership of RAF and Mary Washington Healthcare.
In other 10-year anniversary news, Practice Administrator Chris Snyder reported that Medical Imaging of North Stafford is planning fall events for the public and medical providers, including open houses highlighting both centers’ facilities.
