Frequently Asked Questions
What does it mean that “Carolina Breast Imaging Specialists is providing service at Vidant facilities?”
When you get a mammogram (or any other radiology procedure) at a Vidant location, the images are interpretted by a radiologist. All breast imaging procedures (mammogram, ultrasound, MRI) are sent to radiologists for interpretation. There are now 2 options for which radiologists will interpret your studies. When you (or your doctor) make an appointment for a breast imaging examination you will be asked to choose who you want to interpret your images. You will still go to the Vidant facility to receive the imaging.

Will it cost me more to choose Carolina Breast Imaging Specialists?
No. There is no difference in cost between the specialist(s) at CBIS and any other option. Most screening (annual) mammography services are fully covered by insurance plans without copay or deductible. The other services that may be needed are sometimes applied toward your deductible or coinsurance but there is no added cost because you are choosing a specialist. Your responsibility may be different between CBIS and other options but we have worked hard to keep our fees low so we would expect that your cost with us would be less than the other choices.
