Prostate biopsy does answer the question as to whether or not cancer is present. However, the question has arisen as to if there is an alternative. Until recently, there was not.
New studies, including multi-parametric Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), can find prostate cancer with very high accuracy.
Ultra high field MRI, known as 3T, delivers twice the field strength of traditional high field MRI scanners, providing greater detail in both structure and function. 3T MRI is currently the gold standard in many areas of medical imaging, including oncologic, neurological, orthopedic and urological practices.
Capitol Imaging Services performs 3T multi-parametric MRI and combines it with a digital imaging system to further pinpoint areas of concern that may be cancer of the prostate gland. Completed at our affiliate network affiliate locations in Metairie and Slidell, LA, Capitol Imaging Services performs a prostate MRI study that is not performed and interpreted by any other area hospital or independent imaging center.

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 provide the radiology expertise to review test images and issue critical findings to physicians and other healthcare providers.
Capitol Imaging Services also works to lower out of pocket expenses for people undergoing exams. For people with unfulfilled health insurance deductibles or no health insurance coverage, that’s a major financial advantage. And, that advantage is enjoyed without sacrificing quality of imaging technology, reporting or radiological expertise.
