When it comes to breast cancer, early detection makes all the difference — while breast cancers found during Stages I or II average a 99 percent survival rate, cancers caught at Stage IV have only a 26 percent survival rate.
With that in mind, the Women’s Center at Diagnostic Imaging Services is committed to saving lives with a full range of innovative services.
“We are committed to bringing patients the most up-to-date technology at the highest level of patient care,” said Dr. Deanna Karl, a DIS women’s health radiologist.
With breast imaging services ranging from traditional ultrasounds to advanced technologies like breast tomosynthesis — also known as a 3D digital mammogram — and image-guided breast biopsies, Diagnostic Imaging Services are helping thousands of women across the Gulf South become champions for their own health.
This award-winning facility is the only independent radiology practice in the area to receive the Breast Imaging Center of Excellence designation by the American College of Radiology, a distinction that proves they are on the cutting edge of radiology and detection.
