We provide many imaging services specific to women, including:
- Screening* and diagnostic mammography – 2D and 3D (tomosynthesis)

- Breast ultrasound
- Breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
- Pelvic ultrasound
- Bone density study (DXA)
Similar to several outpatient imaging centers in the Lower 48, many of Providence Imaging Center’s diagnostic and screening imaging exams for women are centered around a separate lounge designated for mammography and breast ultrasound. Robes are provided in addition to gowns or capes for women whose exams require them to partially disrobe. Ask a technologist for a heated blanket or robe to take the chill off.
Five board-certified radiologists – two female – provide on-site coverage for Providence Imaging Center on a rotating basis. All four are skilled in women’s imaging.
