Diagnostic Imaging

PeaceHealth Ketchikan Medical Center’s Diagnostic Imaging department uses the latest in diagnostic equipment, including:

  • general x-ray
  • ultrasound
  • 3D mammography (details below)
  • computer-aided detection for every mammogram
  • stereotactic breast biopsy
  • MRI
  • nuclear medicine
  • computerized tomography
  • bone mineral densitometry

Comfort and Privacy for Women

Our department includes a special suite for women’s screening and diagnostic procedures to give them a place of comfort and privacy. 

It also now includes the most up-to-date mammography technology on the market—Hologic 3Dimensions™ Mammography—that makes it possible for healthcare providers to 

  • see more clearly—by capturing exceptionally sharp images. It's also proven to detect 20-65% more invasive cancers than 2D alone.
  • find breast cancers earlier—potentially cancerous areas can be seen when they're at their smallest.
  • make the entire exam more comfortable—even for women with dense breasts.

What does the new 3D Mammography mean for you?  

  • a faster, more comfortable mammogram.
  • fewer follow-up visits.
  • better peace of mind when you get faster information from your healthcare provider.

Appointments for mammograms can be made directly, without a physician referral. If your last mammogram screening was more than a year ago, call us to schedule yours today.
