Imaging Associates continues its support for the 2020 Alaska Run For Women.
- Imaging Associates continues its support for the 2020 Alaska Run For Women. Imaging Associates has been a proud sponsor of the Alaska Run for Women (AKRFW) since 2006. Each year, AKRFW raises money to help battle breast cancer and support survivors, all while celebrating Alaska’s athletes. A partnership between our premiere radiology clinic and the Run for Women helps promote early detection, the first step in successfully taking on breast cancer. IA boasts an all-female “Dream Team” of fellowship-trained radiologists, specialty-trained technologists, and two advanced nurse practitioners dedicated to Breast and Women’s Imaging, led by Director of Women’s Services, Dr. Heather Tauschek. Tauschek also sits on the AKRFW Board of Directors, further strengthening the commitment to Alaska’s women. In 2018, Imaging Associates was deemed a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, the American College of Radiology’s Gold Standard in Accreditation. Being a BICOE means the IA “Dream Team” is committed to providing Alaska’s women with the most accurate and timely diagnostic care. Patients can receive a full spectrum of breast exams including 3D mammography, breast MRI, ultrasound, and biopsy. The BICOE accreditation process takes 4 to 6 months and must be renewed every 3 years. Imaging Associates is looking forward to continuing our partnership with the AKRFW and hosting the annual grant announcement on Thursday, October 3rd, 2019.
