HCA Virginia’s Henrico Doctors’ and Johnston-Willis Hospitals are now offering a new FDA-approved automated breast ultrasound system for imaging women with dense breast tissue, making them the only hospitals in Central Virginia who are offering this new screening option. The Invenia ABUS, or Automated Breast Ultrasound System, is an adjunct to mammography for asymptomatic women with dense breast tissue and no prior interventions. The system is designed to enhance the consistency, reproducibility and sensitivity of whole breast ultrasound, demonstrating a 35.7 percent improvement in cancer detection. Virginia is one of 13 states that has passed legislation mandating that screening mammography patients demonstrating greater than 50 percent breast density should be informed of their density as well as the limitation of screening with mammography alone.

Henrico-based RF&P Federal Credit Union has changed its name to RiverTrace Federal Credit Union. The company was founded in 1956 to serve the financial needs of RF&P employees and their families. After being granted a community charter in 2013, RF&P membership was expanded to include anyone who lives, works, worships or goes to school in Hanover, Henrico or Chesterfield counties or the City of Richmond. The new name and tagline were developed as a tribute to the James River, the early beginnings of Richmond and the establishment of trade and commerce in the New World.
