But new research from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania suggests that 3D mammography is significantly more effective for breast cancer detection and leads to fewer patient recalls.

DIS has been designated as a pink ribbon facility. Pink Ribbon Facilities are digital imaging centers recognized as providing excellence in breast health paired with their exceptional commitment and support to the women PinkRibbonFacilityLogoof their community.

3D mammography is performed at the Women’s & Advanced Imaging Center in Metairie. Conventional mammography is also performed there as well as at our New Orleans, Marrero, Covington and Slidell facilities.

Call 504-883-5999 or 985-641-2390 for your very own DIS patient experience. Not only do we treat you as a person (not just a patient), but you’ll save money on your healthcare by saying “no thank you” to the hospital or hospital-owned imaging center. DIS has lower average prices for our tests as compared to the hospital AND we do not tack on physician and facility charges that hospitals do to drive up the price of the exam!

Avoid sticker shock.

It’s your healthcare. It’s your money.

Say YES and spend LESS at DIS.
