SEARHC’s Radiology Department provides a variety of advanced imaging options in a caring and safe environment. Often, radiography is the primary step in the diagnosis and treatment of many health concerns. When you need imaging services, like an X-ray, for example, our radiologists specialize in reading and interpreting the imagery captured.
Radiology at SEARHC includes a variety of imaging techniques such as X-ray radiography, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), digital 2D and 3D mammography to diagnose and/or treat diseases.
Using the diagnostic images, your SEARHC radiologist or other physicians can often:
- Diagnose the cause of your symptoms
- Monitor how well your body is responding to a treatment you are receiving for your disease or condition
- Screen for different illnesses, such as breast cancer, colon cancer or heart disease
SEARHC’s radiology department provides real-time monitoring of patient positioning, x-ray tube alignment and cassette placement through its award-winning remote camera technology. The department was awarded the 2018 Innovation in Transformation Award by the Alaska State Hospital and Nursing Home Association.
