Diagnostic Imaging Services shares a video link that stresses the importance of prostate cancer patients educating themselves.

Prostate cancer patients should learn everything they can about their disease. Every patient’s cancer is different. Your treatment will be personalized so it is important to be informed when making decisions. Cancer survivor Joel Nowak believes men diagnosed with prostate cancer should always get a second opinion.

He says to go to a different institution than your original doctor because sometimes doctors may be reluctant to contradict another doctor from the same institution. Ultimately the patient must live with the decisions made so it is best to have all the facts straight before making choices.

DIS offers an exclusive leading-edge technology, Prostate 3T MRI with a Computer Aided Detection (CAD) digital imaging tool that heelps to quickly identify what physicians refer to as “clinically significant disease.”

Multiple prostate biopsies can be avoided.

Prostate 3T MRI is performed at the DIS Women’s & Advanced Imaging Center in Metairie. Call 504-883-5999 or 985-641-2390 for your very own DIS patient experience.

Quality healthcare can actually be less expensive. How? Choosing DIS over the hospital — hospitals have ultra high imaging exam prices and tack on fees that further raise the cost of care.

Say YES and spend LESS at DIS.
