Alaska Radiology Associates (ARA), Alaska’s largest private practice radiology group, founded in 1969, is the first and only, Alaska-based radiology group to offer live 24/7/365 radiologist coverage, all in-house, nothing is sent outside of Alaska.
Dedicated to providing high quality imaging and professional radiology services, we have partnered with ULTRARAD to leverage their latest dicom image routing solution technology. This reliable, redundant, highly secure, and fully automated teleradiology workflow is tailored to meet the unique needs of our Alaskan clients. With our strong emphasis on minimizing the need for additional medical imaging services, this cutting-edge platform makes it possible to provide consistent, concise and accurate reporting for improved patient care.
We distinguish ourselves by the timely delivery of routinely subspecialized services (mammography, musculoskeletal, neuroradiology, and vascular imaging) available Monday – Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. Utilizing a cloud-based, on-demand viewer, we take pride in providing our clients real-time, visual collaboration and phone consultation with our subspecialty radiologists. In order to expedite the highest quality interpretation, our radiologists request that relevant prior images and reports be made available with the current exam at time of interpretation; UltraRad provides a way for that to happen automatically. Upon receipt of the complete package (current exam and relevant priors), we are committed to providing a full finalized report within 2 hours; often under 1 hour! To maintain our turnaround time commitment, we regularly review and measure the volume and impact of incoming exams, in accordance with the priority set for each exam by the sending facility.
Alaska Radiology Associates currently provides full-spectrum diagnostic and interventional radiology and vascular surgical services for Providence Alaska Medical Center and St Elias Specialty Hospital, interventional radiology and vascular surgical services at Alaska Native Medical Center, and timely, subspecialized teleradiology services to the following:

ARA endeavors to be the premier provider of choice for patients and referring physicians within the rural and urban Alaskan communities we serve. We have a heart for working closely with leading healthcare providers to diagnose and treat patients in a professional, accessible, and compassionate manner.
