Women’s Services

Providence Imaging Center in Anchorage is accredited as the State's first Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology, and is the only center in Anchorage with this accreditation. We provide many imaging services specific to women.

We provide many imaging services specific to women, including:

  • Screening* and diagnostic mammography – 2D and 3D (tomosynthesis)
  • Mobile mammography – 2D and 3D (tomosynthesis)
  • Ductogram
  • Cyst aspiration
  • Stereotactic, ultrasound, and 3D-guided breast biopsy
  • Breast ultrasound
  • Breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Pelvic ultrasound
  • Hysterosonogram
  • Hysterosalpingogram
  • 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.

Four 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.
