A woman chose DIS over the hospital and saved $400

How did she save? It was easy. She simply picked up the phone and did exactly what we have been touting for years: shop and compare prices for healthcare services, just as most people do when comparing prices for vehicles, furniture, appliances and homes. The hospital told her it would cost $400 for the exam under her insurance coverage. She contacted Diagnostic Imaging Services and was ecstatic to find out that after our benefits verification process, she was TOTALLY COVERED by her plan with no additional cost to her. Her financial obligation for the exam at DIS: $0. When it comes to healthcare, many don't realize the importance of comparison shopping. You should be concerned about how much your MRI, CT scan, ultrasound, x-ray or other imaging exam will cost you BEFORE you have the test. If your insurance plan has a deductible or coinsurance or if the exam you need is not covered by insurance, you may pay significantly more for your imaging exam at a hospital based center than you will pay at DIS.

Functional imaging makes invisible brain problems visible

Learn more about CereScan brain SPECTWith the CereScan brain imaging technology, information captured from the brain scan can be used to identify the underlying causes of a wide range of brain-based disorders, from depression and bipolar disorder to Alzheimer’s disease and brain injuries.

CereScan is able to take accurate pictures of the functioning areas of the brain. Scans from MRI or CT are only able to take images of the brain at rest. CereScan can pinpoint the actual area of the brain that is not functioning.

Looking for an accurate diagnosis? CereScan can help you get the treatment you need by pinpointing the exact areas of the brain that contribute to the symptoms you may be experiencing. Learn more about how CereScan can help you with conditions ranging from traumatic brain injury to depression.
