breast-cancer-myth-400x400Diagnostic Imaging Services shares a news story that “expose the myths, urban legends, and old wives’ tales surrounding what causes breast cancer.”

Note that one of the myths is having a mammogram, ultrasound or MRI. Yes, you’ll be exposed to radiation during a mammogram, but the amount from this screening test is negligible. Meanwhile, multiple studies have shown that regular mammography can help lower deaths from breast cancer in women aged 40 to 75, especially among those over 50.

DIS performs mammograms, ultrasound and MRI, along with other common exams at all five of our locations. 3D mammography is performed at our Women’s & Advanced Imaging Center in Metairie.

Call 504-883-5999 or 985-641-2390 for your very own DIS patient experience. Say “no thank” you to more expensive costs for imaging services found at local hospitals and their imaging affiliates. For the same exam, without sacrificing quality or level of service, why would you want to pay more just because you go to the hospital?

Say YES and spend LESS at DIS.
