CDI Offers Improved Comfort and Lower Dose Mammograms at it's New North St. Paul Center

posted on WED, OCT 23 2013 by Center for Diagnostic Imaging

St. Paul, MN – October 23, 2013 – Center for Diagnostic Imaging (CDI) has opened a new imaging center in North St. Paul to meet the growing demand for cost-effective, high-quality imaging services in the local community. The center offers new, lower dose screening and diagnostic mammograms as well as a comprehensive suite of women’s imaging services including stereotactic biopsy and breast and body ultrasound services.

“Common reasons women avoid annual screening mammograms are their concerns regarding discomfort and radiation exposure through medical imaging,” said James Sullivan, M.D., radiologist and breast imaging specialist at CDI. “We chose Philips MicroDose technology to ensure high-quality mammography exams while reducing patients’ radiation dose. The new scanner design provides increased comfort with a curved surface which is also of great benefit to the patient.”

Philips MicroDose can provide up to a 50% radiation dose reduction compared to traditional digital mammograms, according to clinical studies on the technology.  CDI is the only provider of Philips MicroDose technology in Minnesota.

“CDI believes in investing in new technology that meets the unique needs of our patient base,” states Rob Cherney, vice president, operations and business development at CDI. “Our plan is to continue to explore how innovative technology like Philips MicroDose mammography can provide clinical benefits as well as enhance the patient experience.”

The new facility is located at 2601 Centennial Drive, Suite 108, North St. Paul. Patients can call 651-287-4177 to schedule a mammogram; physician referrals are not required for this service. Learn more about center locations, hours and services online at www.myCDI.com/TwinCities.
