Welcome to PET/CT Center of Alaska

PET/CT Center of Alaska’s mission is to provide unsurpassed patient care, advanced diagnostic imaging technology, and the highest standards of quality.

What to expect at PET/CT

The health and safety of our patients are top priorities at PET/CT Center of Alaska. We are taking new precautions to ensure ongoing protection for all who come through our doors and particularly for our most vulnerable patients who may have compromised immune systems. These precautions include:

  • We ask patients to arrive 5 minutes early to their appointments, call 907.792.7900 when they arrive and remain in their car until they’re given further instructions. 
  • We are actively screening staff, patients and escorts upon arrival which includes obtaining temperatures and asking a series of questions
  • The front entrance will remain open; however, access will be limited.
  • We ask escorts to remain in the vehicle until the end of the appointment.
  • We are actively discouraging anyone from waiting in the lobby.
  • We will continue to make sure all touchpoints such as door handles, chairs, knobs, faucet handles, and other surfaces are wiped down with medical-grade disinfectants regularly throughout the day.
  • Staff members are implementing social distancing from each other at work and in their personal lives. They are wiping down their workstations several times daily.
  • Every staff member who feels sick has been asked to stay home and be screened for contagious respiratory illnesses by their primary care provider.
  • Patients may receive phone calls from our staff who are working from home. These calls may come through on private or unknown phone numbers. 
  • We request that patients complete their office forms electronically in advance of their appointment to limit exposure that could be transmitted via paper. We will make accommodations for patients who do not have the technology to do so.

We continue to closely follow recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as the circumstances surrounding COVID-19 evolve. We are committed to providing the safest environment possible for our patients and employees.

Sincerely,

PET/CT Center of Alaska
