Capitol Imaging Services knows that September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.

The public’s understanding of the disease is increasing, including its prevalence, approaches to screening and prevention, treatment options and resources that offer updated prostate cancer information throughout the year.

Prostate cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in men and is a leading cause of cancer death in men, second only to lung cancer. Staying informed with the latest news on prevention and screening is an important step in reducing a man’s risk of developing prostate cancer. And, should a diagnosis occur, access to current, in-depth treatment information can help them find the best care.

Our Capitol Imaging Services affiliate, Diagnostic Imaging Services (DIS), performs a prostate 3T MRI exam that utilized a Computed Aided Detection (CAD) imaging tool that further identifies areas in and around the prostate gland that could be cancer. This exam is EXCLUSIVE to DIS as no other imaging provider in Louisiana or the Gulf Coast offers this in-depth study. It’s exclusive because an academic radiology staff team interprets each exam and comes together to issue one comprehensive report to the doctor.

No one else does that!

That’s why men have traveled from neighboring states to visit Diagnostic Imaging Services for our prostate MRI. Rather than undergo repeat biopsies, the MRI reveals any potential concerns, thereby providing doctors with a way to either avoid further biopsies or perform a more precise, pinpoint one.
