Providence Imaging Center in Anchorage sends their Mammography Coach to Seward to do screening mammograms periodically. The mobile mammography coach provides the Seward community with digital tomography mammograms, which produce a clear image in little time and are considered to be the new standard of care. Screening results will be turned around in approximately 24 hours.
The Radiology staff is trained and can perform your outpatient EKG’s. No need to travel out of town for a pre-op EKG or Chest X-ray exam.
