A Saturday morning that is rainy and overcast is the perfect morning to sleep in, relax and be lazy. But, this doesn’t apply for those who came to the lakefront for the 2013 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk on Saturday, October 19. While Mother Nature did not do anyone any favors, by the time the walk commenced at 9:00 a.m., the rain had stopped and the temperature quite comfortable.

Congratulations to those who braved the elements to walk in support of finding a cure against this disease, and to those who are survivors and now going strong and enjoying life. Here is to those who are currently undergoing the fight for their courage and fortitude in facing breast cancer head-on, and doing everything possible to come out on top.

Diagnostic Imaging Services (DIS) is a proud supporter of this event and will make our donation to the American Cancer Society’s local New Orleans chapter in November.

DIS performs screening and diagnostic mammograms, breast ultrasound, breast MRI and breast biopsy as part of our women’s health imaging services. In addition, screening and diagnostic mammograms are performed at Imaging Center of Columbus in Mississippi.

Diagnostic Imaging Services and Imaging Center of Columbus are affiliates of the Capitol Imaging Services Network of screening and diagnostic testing centers. 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 a mammogram, we also provide the radiology expertise to review test images and issue critical findings to physicians and other health care providers.

Capitol Imaging Services often reduces out of pocket costs for people by performing our exams at lower fees. For people with unfulfilled health insurance deductibles, that’s a major financial advantage. And, this advantage is enjoyed without sacrificing quality of care, imaging technology or results reporting.

Capitol Imaging Services and our affiliates are doctor trusted and patient preferred.
