Imaging services are key resources in confirming a medical condition, surgical and radiation planning, and evaluation of treatment methods. When you choose Providence Imaging Center, you’ll encounter a highly experienced team of compassionate caregivers equipped with advanced tools who are committed to bringing you peace of mind during the unknowns of life.
Providence Imaging Center partners with the most highly trained and experienced radiologists in the state of Alaska. Many of our Radiologists have undergone fellowship training* in an array of sub-specialties that include:
- Breast imaging, including mammography, breast tomosynthesis, breast ultrasound, breast MRI, and breast biopsy. Providence Imaging Center partners with the only breast fellowship-trained radiologists in South-central Alaska. We have been designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology because of our multiple breast imaging accreditations and high level of quality and safety.
- Pediatric radiology, including the use of imaging and intervention to diagnose and treat congenital conditions that commonly occur in infants and children.
- Neuroradiology, involving diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting the brain, sinuses, spine, and central nervous system. This includes conditions such as stroke, cancer, trauma, seizure disorders, and diseases associated with aging.
- Body imaging, focusing on the abdomen and major organs, such as the liver, lungs, and gastrointestinal tract.
- Musculoskeletal radiology, partnered with the only fellowship trained radiologists in south-central Alaska devoted to imaging of the muscles and bones. Methods include X-ray, computed tomography(CT), ultrasound, and MRI.
The professional radiologists at Providence Imaging Center take your health seriously.
More About Fellowship Training
After residency is complete, a radiologist may choose to begin practicing right away or receive specialized fellowship training. Beyond the 1-2 years of the fellowship itself, radiologists who pursue an imaging subspecialty must read exams within their chosen specialty and maintain continuing medical education (CME) credits with an emphasis in their specialty to remain proficient in the field.
At Providence Imaging Center we take full advantage of our radiologists’ specialty training. When a patient comes to us for an imaging exam it is our goal to have a fellowship-trained radiologist interpret that test. This assures patients and providers of our ability to provide the most comprehensive and highest quality interpretation of patients’ underlying medical conditions.
