First in San Antonio! - PET/CT Services Now Available on Saturdays
6/25/2012 12:00:00 AM
Baptist M&S Imaging is proud to be the first imaging provider in the San Antonio area to announce immediate Saturday appointment availability for PET/CT imaging services at its Downtown and Medical Center locations. Both centers are conveniently located, with Baptist M&S Imaging Downtown at 215 E. Quincy, Suite 100 and the Medical Center location at 7888 Fredericksburg Road.
An integrated PET/CT scan is the most advanced imaging technology for the detection and evaluation of cancer. The whole-body scan generates high-resolution images of abnormal activity and its location. Abnormal biological activity often takes place before physical changesare identifiable by other imaging exams such as MRI, CT, X-ray and ultrasound. A PET/CT scan provides images of the entire body, detecting primary and secondary disease earlier and more accurately than any other imaging technology.
Baptist M&S Imaging is contracted with most major insurance companies and will be happy to have an insurance coordinator verify insurance coverage. Insurance companiesand Medicare generally cover PET scans for cancer.
Saturday PET/CT appointment availability at Baptist M&S Imaging Downtown and Medical Center locations demonstrate Baptist M&S Imaging’s commitment to satisfaction in serving San Antonio and the surrounding communities. To make an appointment for any imaging service or for assistance with insurance verification, please call our centralized scheduling department at 210-228-XRAY(9729).
The National Oncologic PET Registry
Baptist M&S Imaging‘s commitment to quality care isabout more than providing a quality PET scan, it’s about ensuring that its patients know about resources available to help them pay for their care. The National Oncologic PET Registry (NOPR) was developed to expand coverage for PET scans with F-18 fluorode oxyglucose (FDG) to include cancers and indications not presently eligible for Medicare reimbursement.
The NOPR is sponsored by the World Molecular Imaging Society (WMIS) and managed by the American College of Radiology (ACR) through the American College of Radiology Imaging Network (ACRIN). Cancers and indications that are reimbursable by Medicare are not eligible for entry in NOPR.
The chart below lists cancers and indications eligible for entry in the NOPR. This information was obtained from the National Oncologic PET Registry website. Visit www.cancerPETregistry.org for more information.
C = covered nationally – Not eligible for entry in the NOPR
NC = non-covered nationally – Not eligible for entry in the NOPR
NOPR = covered only with entry in the NOPR
