Capitol Imaging Services shares information about an advanced imaging exam we perform as part of our portfolio of women’s imaging services: breast MRI.
MRI of the breast is not a replacement for mammography or ultrasound imaging but rather a supplemental tool that has many important uses, including:
- Screening in women at high risk for breast cancer.
- Determining the extent of cancer after a new diagnosis of breast cancer.
- Further evaluating hard-to-assess abnormalities seen on mammography.
- Evaluating lumpectomy sites in the years following breast cancer treatment.
- Following chemotherapy treatment in patients getting neoadjuvant chemotherapy (treatment before the cancer has been surgically removed).
- Evaluating breast implants.
Breast MRI is performed at select Capitol Imaging Services locations. Click here to learn more about breast MRI and our affiliates who complete this specialty exam.
In addition to breast MRI, Capitol Imaging Services affiliates perform screening and diagnostic scans such as mammograms, breast ultrasound, breast biopsy, cyst aspiration and galactograms. These studies are important components of our women’s health imaging portfolio.
Capitol Imaging Services is the largest independent radiology practice of its type serving the southeastern United States. Not only do we perform the scan such as an MRI or ultrasound, we also provide the radiology expertise to review test images and issue important results to physicians and other health care providers.
Capitol Imaging Services also often lowers out of pocket costs for people by performing exams at lower fees. For people with unfulfilled health insurance deductibles, that’s a major financial advantage. And, people enjoy this advantage without sacrificing quality of care, technology or results.
Capitol Imaging Services performs imaging exams in facilities that are free of hectic medical campuses, multi-story parking garages, elevators, painted lines and signs everywhere. People who come to a CIS facility park in front or near our clinic, walk in the front door and straight into our reception area. Because we know that undergoing an imaging exam can be a worrisome, anxious time for many, we work to offer a calm, quiet atmosphere that puts people at ease.
