A false positive is an abnormal area that looks like a cancer, but turns out to be normal.
If you are a woman who has been called back for additional imaging, due to the uncertainty of the screening mammogram, 3D mammography may be the answer. Decreasing the chance of having to come back for additional tests means a potential reduction in the overall cost as additional exams, such as a diagnostic mammogram, are usually paid of your health insurance deductible.
DIS is the only non-hospital imaging entity in Louisiana performing 3D mammography. Women love the comfort, convenience and excellent care they receive from our mammogram technologists — all of which are certified by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.
3D mammography is done at the DIS Women’s & Advanced Imaging Center in Metairie. Call 504-883-5999 or 985-641-2390 for your very own DIS patient experience.
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.
Say YES and spend LESS at DIS.
