Diagnostic Imaging Services answers the question, “So, who are the best candidates to take advantages of cutting-edge 3D mammography technology?
3D mammography is especially recommended for women with dense breasts., With conventional mammography, the images of dense breasts don’t always show us everything radiologists need to see.
It is particularly beneficial for patients who are at high risk for breast cancer or who have a family history of breast cancer. What’s more, the 3D technology is so accurate that rarely, if ever, do patients receive a “callback” because the image wasn’t clear enough to make a solid diagnosis.
A number of health insurance plans now cover 3D screening mammograms. Medicare and Medicaid were the first two plans to recognize the superiority of 3D technology. Plans covering 3D expanded to the following:
- Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Louisiana HMO/PPO
- Humana Gold
- Louisiana Health Care Medicaid
- Peoples Health Network Gilsbar Employee Only
- Peoples Health Network Medicare
DIS is the only independently-owned imaging organization in Louisiana offering 3D mammography. We perform 3D at the Metairie – Veterans Memorial Boulevard, Marrero – Avenue C, Slidell and Covington – Highway 21 locations.
