Capitol Imaging Services answers the question, “what are the benefits of using 3D mammography?”
Many studies in Europe and the U.S. have substantiated superior breast cancer detection rates when combining 3D mammography with conventional 2D mammography. Studies have demonstrated a 10%-30% increase in overall breast cancer detection (over 2D imaging alone).
This ability to detect breast cancer at an earlier stage will save more lives. Two of the top benefits are improving the early detection of breast cancer and providing peace of mind due to greater clarity and accuracy.
This increased accuracy reduces the number of call-backs (by as much as 30%), sparing women the anxiety, inconvenience and expense of coming back for further imaging.
More comprehensive and taking no more time than a conventional mammogram, 3D mammography is performed at our Capitol Imaging Services locations in Covington, Marrero, Metairie and Slidell, LA, and Columbus, MS.
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 a mammogram 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 that are not entirely covered by health insurance. For those with unfulfilled health insurance deductibles or no insurance coverage, that’s a major financial advantage. And, that advantage is enjoyed without sacrificing the quality of imaging technology, reporting or radiological expertise.
Our clinic associates work diligently to provide each and every guest with a warm welcome upon arrival at one of our centers, to have them have as pleasant an experience as possible, and to extend a sincere thank you for visiting us.
