Mammography & Breast Imaging in Sterling, VA

At Radiology Imaging Associates (RIA), we believe that mammography is the cornerstone of breast healthcare. Annually, over 40,000 patients visit our women’s imaging centers for their breast imaging services.

As a trusted community medical imaging provider, RIA is committed to offering the highest quality of care and current technologies in the prevention and diagnosis of breast cancer. We offer a comprehensive list of breast imaging services from 3D mammography and ultrasound imaging, to breast MRI and options in breast biopsy.  RIA also provides the latest mammographic imaging technology. RIA offers Lower Dose 3D mammography or digital breast tomosynthesis in all five clinical locations.

RIA has five (5) full service diagnostic imaging sites in southern Maryland and northern Virginia. Each center has a “women only” women’s imaging center, a private area that creates a more calming imaging experience unique to women’s imaging. Every RIA women’s imaging center is accredited by the American College of Radiology and the digital mammography systems are Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) certified. Our breast imaging team consists of board-certified radiologists and certified technologists who have many years of experience in this area. Some of the team members are breast cancer survivors and they themselves understand the anxieties, fears and emotions you may experience.

COVID-19 Update

The Governors of Maryland and Virginia have closed all non-essential businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic. Radiology centers have been classified as essential services. 

The health, well-being, and safety of our patients and staff is our top priority. We are committed to helping stop the spread of COVID-19. We have taken steps to continue providing only critical service required to meet the needs of the community.  After very careful consideration we have decided to reschedule all non-urgent imaging appointments as well as consolidate our services by adjusting hours and center openings. To protect everyone, we are closely following the guidance of local, national and global health authorities – including the CDC – in addressing current challenges. As circumstances continue to change, we will keep you informed.

As the situation continues to develop in our community, we want to maintain our ability to provide quality service while safeguarding the health and safety of our patients and staff. We realize these are tenuous times and we are actively monitoring the ongoing situation and following the latest available CDC guidelines. In an effort to limit the risk of exposure for our patients and our employees who may be in high-risk categories, we are asking that you:

Please do not go to a Fairfax Radiology Center/Radiology Imaging Associates location if ANY of the following apply:

    1. You have cough, fever, or shortness of breath
    2. You have traveled by airplane or to New York City in the past 14 days or less
    3. You have had contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19 or who is undergoing a test (results pending) for COVID-19.

Instead, please contact your physician for instructions. Patients may call to reschedule their appointment once they are symptom and fever-free for a minimum of 24 hours without the use of medication.
