Capitol 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.

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

Multiple prostate biopsies can be avoided

Prostate 3T MRI is performed at three Capitol Imaging Services affiliate centers in Metairie and Slidell, LA. This prostate study is unique compared to any other imaging provider in the way the exam is performed, the post-exam Computer Aided Detection (CAD) technique and the academic approach to interpreting each study.

Capitol Imaging Services is the largest independent radiology practice of its type serving the Southeastern Unites 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 those with unfulfilled health insurance deductibles or no health insurance coverage, that’s a major financial advantage. And, this advantage is enjoyed without sacrificing quality of imaging, reporting or radiological expertise.
