UVA Health Outpatient Imaging Culpeper is proud to unveil the latest enhancement to their center; a second innovative mammography machine with the addition of a new breast biopsy system. This addition marks a significant stride in bolstering the commitment to delivering superior patient outcomes by integrating AI-powered analytics into mammograms.

The introduction of this new mammography machine reflects our commitment to leading in the delivery of the best and most advanced patient care. The new mammography unit is state-of-the-art in 3D tomosynthesis screening, with the lowest possible radiation dose, associated 2D synthetic image generation, increased patient comfort, and optimized for a mature/2nd generation AI platform.

The state-of-the-art biopsy system streamlines image capture, measurably reduces compression time, and enhances sample identification. It is noted for being one of the world’s first breast biopsy solutions, seamlessly integrating tissue acquisition, real-time imaging, and advanced specimen separation.

At UVA Outpatient Imaging Culpeper, our center operates at a level equal to any breast center in the country.

Timothy Rooney, MD, UVA Radiologist Group states, “This state-of-the-art system, driven by Genius AI-powered analytics, revolutionizes reading efficiency while upholding exceptional image quality. I believe we will see improved diagnostic outcomes and increased patient satisfaction with their experience”. “We all understand the critical importance of early detection in healthcare, early screening can be truly lifesaving and this unit represents a significant leap forward in our capabilities.”

UVA Health Outpatient Imaging Culpeper is committed to continually expanding their services for our community’s health. In the past few years, the addition of a Fast Breast MRI and Ultrasound guided breast surveys were installed to support patients with dense breast tissue, making it possible to keep their care in their community.
