The Committee on Women in Medicine and Science (COWIMS) selected Carrie Rochman, MD, an associate professor of radiology and medical imaging, as Woman of the Month for October. Dr. Rochman is a board-certified radiologist with subspecialty practice exclusively in breast imaging. Her clinical activities are centered on the detection and diagnosis of breast cancer. Her passion is to make a positive impact on the quality of care and to help women. Knowing that breast cancer touches all of us from family to close friends she is motivated to give back and provide a patient-centric approach to care that is personalized and tailored based on the patient’s individual factors, such as age, family history, physical composition of breast, and breast density.
Dr. Rochman completed residency training at the University of Virginia, where she served as chief resident. She completed fellowship training in breast imaging at UVA. She is part of a comprehensive breast imaging division that provides state-of-the-art diagnostic and interventional breast services, including digital mammography, 3D mammography, contrast enhanced mammography (CEM), breast ultrasound, breast MRI, image-guided core needle biopsy, image-guided pre-operative localization, and galactography. She serves as assistant program director for the UVA radiology residency program. Her research interests include high-intensity focused ultrasound ablation of breast tumors and contrast enhanced mammography.
