Capitol Imaging Services provides a reminder that in virtually all cases, monies from a qualified high deductible health plan with a health savings account can be used for the 3D mammography fee.
3D has been touted simply as a superior mammogram. Over 20 of the top cancer centers in the United States already utilize this technology, which is also known as breast tomosynthesis.
3D mammography has been reported to provide results in superior clinical performance through the following three important areas: earlier detection, fewer callbacks and better visualization for the radiologist.
Screening and diagnostic mammography is performed by the Capitol Imaging Services affiliate, Diagnostic Imaging Services (DIS). DIS has locations in Covington, Marrero, Metairie and Slidell, LA that serve the greater New Orleans and southeast Louisiana regions. In addition to mammography, DIS also offers breast ultrasound, breast MRI and breast biopsy services, which may be considered appropriate as part of a provider’s diagnostic process.
Capitol Imaging Services is the largest independent radiology practice serving the southeastern United States. We not only perform the scan such as a mammogram or MRI, but also provide the radiology expertise to review exam images and issues important results and findings to physicians and other healthcare providers.
Capitol Imaging Services also often lowers out of pocket costs for people by having lower fees for imaging exams. For people with an unfulfilled health insurance deductible, that’s a major benefit. Plus, Capitol Imaging Services affiliates offer the same, if not better, technology and an excellent outpatient testing experience.
