Imaging Associates is pleased to be the first in Alaska to offer Contrast Enhanced Digital Mammography (CEDM)!
• Comparable sensitivity and fewer false positives compared to a breast MRI • A shorter (8-10 minute) exam time • Up to one-fourth the cost of a breast MRI • Less difficulty obtaining insurance pre-authorization • An ideal solution for anxious claustrophobic patients or those with implanted metal devices
While CEDM will not be an alternative for everyone, we do anticipate that about 40% of those women clinically indicating the need for a Breast MRI will be eligible for CEDM. Talk to your provider if you are interested!

Our Breast Care Coordinators provide you with a special touch. The coordinators are responsible for helping you with risk assessment and can order the appropriate diagnostic testing to ensure timely follow-up and to provide you the best breast care available. To ensure timely diagnosis they follow-up on your biopsy and track the pathology making it easy for referring providers to get your information. The primary function of the coordinator is to communicate with the Radiologist, and relay the findings to you along with helping transition you to the appropriate level of care.
