Board-certified radiologist Kelly Powers, MD, recently returned to Alaska to join Imaging Associates of Providence. Powers, who reads for both IAP locations in South Anchorage and the Valley, is fellowship trained in women’s imaging. She completed her fellowship at Brown University, having dedicated eight months of her fellowship to breast imaging, including stereotactic, ultrasound and MRI-guided biopsies as well as breast MRI. She also dedicated four months to obstetric ultrasound, pelvic MRI, body CT and ultrasound.
Anchorage is Power’s hometown and she now lives in Eagle River, where she plans to raise her family and further her career. “I wanted to continue to strive for excellence in my practice,” says Powers, “and Alaska Radiology Associates and Imaging Associates value both excellence in radiology and patient care.”
Powers graduated cum laude in Biochemistry from Bowdoin College in Brunswick, ME and earned her medical degree from Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, OR. She has published several papers on breast imaging and recently co-authored a chapter on breast imaging for an oncologic textbook now in publication. She is also the winner of several grants and scholarships.
A competitive alpine skier in high school, Powers attended Dimond High School and Glacier Creek Ski Academy (with Tommy Moe, who went on to win Olympic gold in 1994). Today she continues to enjoy alpine skiing, along with triathlons, swimming, and biking.
Powers is one of several women’s imaging specialists with Imaging Associates of Providence; others include Dr. Denise Farleigh, Dr. Chris Kottra, Dr. David Moeller and Dr. Heather Tauschek.
Imaging Associates of Providence is operated by Alaska Radiology Associates, the same group of physicians who have been providing diagnostic radiology services for Providence for decades.
