IAP Named Valley’s First
“Breast Imaging Center of Excellence”
ANCHORAGE, AK — The American College of Radiology (ACR) has designated Imaging Associates of Providence’s Mat-Su Trunk Road location as a “Breast Imaging Center of Excellence.”
To become a Center of Excellence, Imaging Associates of Providence (IAP) underwent a rigorous review of personnel qualifications, equipment requirements, quality assurance, and quality control procedures by a team of board-certified physicians and medical physicists.
The designation also confirms that IAP’s facility is fully accredited in mammography, breast ultrasound, stereotactic breast biopsy and ultrasound-guided breast biopsy.
Nationwide, less than 10 percent of certified breast imaging centers have this distinction. IAP is one of only two imaging centers in the state of Alaska with this designation and is the only one in the Matanuska Susitna Valley. Read more...

Introducing Spider Vein Removal Through Visual Sclerotherapy
Imaging Associates now offers total vein treatment, including both VenaCure laser treatment of large, painful varicose veins and visual sclerotherapy for removing smaller, surface veins known as spider veins.
Visual sclerotherapy is a fast, effective way to eliminate spider veins.
There’s no surgery or downtime. The procedure itself takes a matter of minutes and, after just a few treatments, patients will enjoy a healthy new look.
For more detailed information about this spider vein removal procedure, visit our vein treatment pages.
Mammography Socials a Big Hit
After introducing “Mammogram Socials” last year, Imaging Associates is helping more and more patients make the most of their annual screening appointments, with delicious hors d’oeuvres, various liquid refreshments, and the comfort of friends. All, at no extra cost.
These private parties can be arranged for any group of five or more mammography patients and are held after hours at either Imaging Associates location: in South Anchorage on Abbott Road or in the Valley near Trunk Road and the Parks Highway. The screenings are appropriate for any patient needing an annual or first (baseline) screening mammogram.
For more information and to schedule a mammogram social, call Diana at 444-9003 in Anchorage or Sterling at 631-8404 in the Valley.
