Fairbanks Imaging and Breast Center is the only Breast Imaging Center of Excellence (BICOE) designated by American College of Radiology in Interior Alaska. BICOE designation is awarded to breast imaging centers that achieve excellence by seeking and earning accreditation in all of the ACR’s voluntary breast-imaging accreditation programs and modules, in addition to the mandatory Mammography Accreditation Program.
A facility is eligible to receive the ACR Breast Imaging Center of Excellence designation if it is fully accredited by the ACR in the following modalities:
- Stereotactic breast biopsy
- Breast ultrasound, including the ultrasound-guided breast biopsy module
- Breast MRI
Our team of Board certified, on-site accredited radiologists, technologists and support staff perform quality studies and provide direct and immediate results to our patients with breast health concerns. This service is at the very core of being a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence.

The fight against breast disease and breast cancer is a collaborative effort and often starts with the appropriate study at the Fairbanks Imaging Center.

Michael Carroll Cancer Treatment Center at Fairbanks Memorial Hospital to ensure a comprehensive, collaborative approach to the patient care plan.
