prostate-sticker1Diagnostic Imaging Services knows that September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.

It’s time to increase the public’s understanding of the disease, 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. According to American Cancer Society, there will be an estimated 192,280 new cases of prostate cancer and an estimated 27,360 deaths in the United States during 2009. 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.

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 a three-team radiology staff interprets each exam and comes together to issue one comprehensive report to the doctor.

No one else does that!
