In the greater New Orleans and southeastern Louisiana region, the Diagnostic Imaging Services Women’s Center, part of our Metairie, LA Women’s and Advanced Imaging facility, has been awarded the Breast Imaging Center of Excellence designation by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
According to the ACR, “The Breast Imaging Center of Excellence (BICOE) designation is awarded to breast imaging centers that achieve excellence by seeking and earning accreditation in all of the ACR’s voluntary breast-imaging accreditation programs and modules, in addition to the mandatory Mammography Accreditation Program.”
Our breast imaging services in Metairie includes 3D digital mammography, also known as breast tomosynthesis, breast ultrasound, breast MRI, image-guided breast biopsies (including MRI-guided biopsy), cyst aspiration and galactograms. Our advanced 3D imaging technology (also available in the DIS Covington, Marrero and Metairie, LA facilities) allow us to detect up to 40% more invasive breast cancers compared with older techniques.

Diagnostic Imaging Services’ Women’s Center is the only independent radiology practice facility in southeastern Louisiana, the Mississippi Gulf Coast and surrounding regions to receive this accreditation.
Capitol Imaging Services is the largest independent radiology practice serving the southeastern United States. Not only do we perform the scan, such as a mammogram or ultrasound, but also provides the radiology expertise to review test images and issue the important findings to physicians and other healthcare providers.
Our affiliates also often lower out of pocket costs for people by performing our services at lower fees than other imagers. For people with unfulfilled health insurance deductible, that’s a major financial advantage. And, it is an advantage achieved without sacrificing quality of care of imaging technology.
