Providence Seward Medical and Care Center Radiology services include Computed Tomography (CT), Ultrasound, Diagnostic X-Ray, Portable X-Ray and Digital Mammography. Our imaging staff will be there to greet you and help with all your imaging needs whether through an outpatient visit or through the PSMCC Emergency Room.
Our recently installed 16-slice CT scanner allows for more exams on more patients and is much faster than our previous CT scan technology. The image quality and clarity it provides is excellent. The CT exams performed in Seward include Head, Cervical, Thoracic and Lumbar Spine, Soft tissue neck, Sinuses, Chest, Abdomen, Pelvis and Extremities.
We are equipped with a brand new GE Logiq E9 ultrasound machine. This equipment produces superior images for both patients and physicians. It is also capable of providing the community of Seward with many sought after capabilities, including 4D imaging for expectant mothers. Ultrasounds performed at PSMCC include Upper and Lower Extremity Vascular exams, Carotids, Abdomens, Thyroids, Pelvis, OB/GYN’s (with new 4D), Testicles, and other Small Parts exams.
Diagnostic X-Ray / Portable X-Ray
This equipment allows our staff to image patients with a wide variety of medical conditions. We have a portable x-ray machine that allows us to bring our equipment to the patient when necessary. Our technology is CR (Computed Radiography), which means there is no film involved. The image is recorded on an imaging plate and is then read and digitized by a laser scanner. This process is much faster than film and produces better quality images.
Mobile Mammography Coach
Providence Imaging Center in Anchorage sends their Mammography Coach to Seward to do screening mammograms once a month. The mobile mammography coach provides the Seward community with digital 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. If you have pre-op testing to be done, we can do 2 of the 3 steps in Radiology for you with your order from your physician in Anchorage.
Request for Images
If you need your images directly after your imaging test, we now have the cutting-edge technology to privately email the images to your doctor or to your own personal email. Just sign a Release of Information for your medical records and our staff can get your images to you without the need of a CD or the time delay of mailing. Once you receive your images in your email, you can forward them to your physician, or multiple physicians, if needed. This new exciting technology is called Agilisys!
