The University of Washington’s breast imaging program is one of the best in the nation. Our patients are cared for by UW physicians based at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, which is a state-of-the-art outpatient clinic operated jointly by the University of Washington, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, and Seattle Children’s Hospital. The SCCA serves the greater Seattle area through the SCCA breast health clinic, the Roosevelt breast health clinic, satellite screening centers, and mobile screening van.
