Diagnostic Imaging Services made a commitment several years ago to continue to invest in technology and imaging capabilities that brought better opportunities for improved diagnostic results for physicians, medical providers and the public we serve.
To that end, DIS has now installed a second 3T (T=Tesla) MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scanner at our Metairie – Veterans Memorial Boulevard location. Our additional 3T scanner will play a crucial role in meeting the requirements for advanced imaging and subspecialty diagnosis.
There are numerous reasons for offering the powerful technology of 3T MRI. Among them are:
- The increased magnet strength provides many diagnostic benefits at no additional expense.
- 3T MRI is an advanced scanner, producing clearer images and more accurate diagnoses.
- 3T MRI helps doctors see abnormalities on very small scales, allowing for a more specific diagnosis. Examples include diagnosing conditions such as:
- Prostate and breast cancer
3T MRI now a “triple threat” at DIS
With this installation, Diagnostic Imaging Services now has three 3T MRI systems. With two at our Metairie – Veterans Memorial Boulevard location and the recent addition of 3T MRI technology at our Marrero – Avenue C location (the only 3T MRI on the West Bank), DIS simply provides more imaging fire power than any other imaging provider – and that includes area hospitals.
Yet, at DIS, we do not sacrifice quality for cost. By choosing Diagnostic Imaging Services, you avoid the mega-high hospital imaging costs and tacked on radiology and facility fees. Lower costs for tests lead to any deductible amounts you would have to pay as being lower, too.
High quality. Superior technology. Lower fees and costs. Why pay more when you don’t have to? Choose independent and save. Choose Diagnostic Imaging Services: doctor trusted and patient preferred.
