Advanced Imaging of Lafayette provides high-quality, patient-centered care. We work to ensure each individual patient has an exceptional experience.
We communicate directly with the referring doctor to provide the information needed for an accurate diagnosis.
Our imaging services include:
Doctors use magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to find diseases or abnormalities in the body without using X-rays. MRI uses a magnetic field and radio waves to create detailed images of the body. MRI is non-invasive and painless and most scans require fewer than sixty minutes to complete.
Magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) is a type of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). An MRA provides detailed images of blood vessels without the use of catheters or surgery. Like MRI, MRA is safe and painless.
Breast MRI is a type of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). A breastMRI is a powerful diagnostic tool that can detect very small cancers that mammograms or ultrasounds may overlook.
MRI-Guided Breast Biopsy
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) Guided Breast Biopsy is less invasive than surgical biopsy and only requires local anesthetic to numb the biopsy site. The radiologist will remove a tissue sample under MRI guidance to be analyzed to determine if the growth is benign or cancerous.
Your doctor may order an additional test beyond your Brain MRI and this is called a NeuroQuant or LesionQuant study. We will send your MR Images needed for this test directly to Doctors’ Imaging in Metairie, LA. This test is performed only with your permission and if your physician orders it. Doctors’ Imaging will contact you and request payment of a separate fee. The results of the NeuroQuant or LesionQuant study will be sent to your referring doctor within 48 hours.
