Diagnostic Imaging Services (DIS) offers some reasons that work to answer the question, “why would a doctor specify a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) on a 3T ultra-high field scanner?”

  1. The increased magnet strength gives us many benefits at no additional expense.
  2. 3T MRI is an advanced scanner, producing clearer images and more accurate diagnoses.
  3. 3T MRI helps doctors see abnormalities on very small scales, allowing for a more specific diagnosis. Examples include diagnosing and treating conditions such as:
    • Epilepsy
    • Tumors
    • Strokes
    • Musculoskeletal and heart diseases

DIS utilizes state-of-the art 3T MRI systems at our Metairie – Veterans Memorial Boulevard, Metairie – Houma Boulevard and Marrero – Avenue C locations. In the near future, our latest 3T MRI will be operating on the Northshore with the installation at our Slidell center at 1310 Gause Boulevard.

Our continued investment in advanced technology signifies our commitment to southeast Louisiana and the Gulf South. Diagnostic Imaging Services does not believe in standing pat, but in researching and acquiring the right technology for the right screening and diagnostic testing reasons.

The powerful systems are further bolstered by advanced Superior Glenoid Labrum Tearsoftware platinum (i.e. top of the line) platforms that are critical for our technologists and radiologists to produce the superior images doctors expect from ultra high field systems.

Diagnostic Imaging Services is accredited by the American College of Radiology in MRI. When 3T is recommended, turn to the independent outpatient provider that surpasses the older systems offered by other imagers.

At DIS, we do not sacrifice quality for cost. By choosing DIS, 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.
