Fredericksburg, September 6th, 2017 – Medical Imaging of Fredericksburg (MIF) is proud to announce the opening of a new Imaging Center for Women (ICW) location in North Stafford. The new center is an extension of the ICW 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 Radiologic Associates of Fredericksburg (RAF) and Mary Washington Healthcare (MWH).
The new center features advanced breast cancer screening services such as 3D mammograms, the latest technology in the fight against breast cancer.
“A 3D mammogram takes virtual slices of the breast and looks at it section by section. This leads to fewer callbacks and fewer missed cancers,” said Dr. Roni Talukdar, board certified, fellowship-trained radiologist. “3D mammograms are the best thing in breast imaging in the last 10 years, and we’re very excited to be able to offer this to the women of our community.”
Another service offered at the North Stafford location are DEXA bone density scans. While bones scans are beneficial for both men and women, women tend to have higher incidences of osteoporosis. Dr. Talukdar recommends engaging a primary physician to determine whether a bone scan would be beneficial.
The new center offers crucial treatments and imaging for women in the region in a more convenient location, just off of route 610 and I-95. It also hopes to encourage more women to take advantage of screenings for detecting breast cancer in its earliest, most treatable, stages.
“Some of our doctors have been practicing breast imaging for over 30 years,” said Dr. Talukdar. “Between their knowledge and the newer doctors who have recently trained with elite programs and universities, we’re able to take education and training from the forefront of medicine and then bring it to our community. We provide world class medical care with a local flavor, and we take pride in that.”
The new ICW is located next to Medical Imaging of North Stafford at 125 Woodstream
Blvd., Stafford, VA 22556. It will serve women in Stafford, Garrisonville, and Aquia Harbour, among others.
Appointments can be scheduled by calling (540) 741-XRAY (9729).
