The Patient Friendly MRI!

People choose the Non Claustrophobic Open Sided MRI system for their imaging needs. A friend or family member may sit with you in the examination room during the test. By providing a system that can greatly reduce anxiety and nervousness, people are more relaxed. The result? Usually, shorter scan times and better quality images for the physician. Non Claustrophic MRI provides better comfort for you – and yes, quality results at a lower cost.

Hospitals: the most expensive option for imaging exams

According to an article in Consumer Reports, a woman paid $9,038 for a CT scan in a hospital ER that would have cost $318 in an outpatient imaging clinic.

The same imaging test can often cost hundreds or thousands of dollars more if done in a hospital, or in an imaging center affiliated with a hospital! At Diagnostic Imaging Services, we offer imaging services for often two to three times less than competing hospitals! Savvy consumers shop around for everything from living room furniture to home computers, but when it comes to medical imaging, many don't realize the importance of comparison shopping. Are you concerned about how much your MRI, CT scan, ultrasound, x-ray or other imaging exam will cost you? If your insurance plan has a deductible or coinsurance, or if the exam you need is not covered by insurance, you may pay significantly more for your imaging exam at a hospital based center than you will pay at DIS!
