January 11, 2016 — Diagnostic Imaging Services Inc. (DIS) of Metairie, La., has recently upgraded their computed tomography (CT) scanner services with the installation of Hitachi’s first Supria CT scanner in the United States. The Hitachi Supria CT combines the latest radiation dose saving technologies in a compact design with enhanced patient access features to comfortably accommodate a wide range of patient sizes, including bariatric patients.

“With DIS acquiring the latest technology in CT, we demonstrate our continuing commitment to provide superior product value to healthcare providers and the general public, all within a freestanding outpatient imaging environment,” said Michael Holmes, CEO of DIS. “Referrals do not need to be made to a hospital in order to take advantage of new and progressive imaging modalities,” he added.
