Mammography is part of a life-long breast-care program that includes breast self-exam, clinical breast exam and mammography.
Since opening in 1986, Providence Imaging Center in Anchorage has led the way in breast imaging services in Alaska. In August 2005, Providence Imaging Center introduced digital mammography in its three mammography suites, and offers this state-of-the-art technology in a mobile mammography coach as well. It was the first to offer stereotactic breast biopsy, breast MRI, computer-aided detection, sentinel node evaluation for breast cancer patients, and mobile mammography in the state.
Providence Imaging Center's mammography, breast ultrasound, breast MRI, ultrasound-guided breast biopsy and stereotactic breast biopsy programs are accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR), resulting in a special designation as Alaska's first Breast Imaging Center of Excellence. We are the only facility with this designation in Anchorage, and have been since 2007. This review process ensures patients and referring health care providers that Providence Imaging Center's radiologists, technologists and equipment meet the ACR's high standards.
