The new Inova Schar Cancer Institute — Peterson Family Breast Center is located on the Inova Loudoun Hospital Medical Campus. It joins subspecialized physicians and clinicians who are dedicated to excellence in breast care – from screening and diagnosis to clinical trials and genomics.
Services include comprehensive breast imaging, breast navigators, genetic counseling, and Inova's unique Life with Cancer® program. All mammograms are read by dedicated fellowship trained breast imagers. Additionally, our center is pleased to offer the Hologic SmartCurve™ System, which allows for a more comfortable mammogram without increased radiation. The curved compression surface mirrors the shape of a woman's breast and curvature at the chest wall, reducing "pinching."
The Inova Schar Cancer Institute – Peterson Family Breast Center further enhances the patient's experience and complements Inova Loudoun Hospital's existing accredited breast program. Our mission is to provide every woman in our community with convenient, compassionate and high quality care for all breast health needs.
