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 interpreted 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.  If you do not specifically ask for CBIS you may have your case assigned to a radiologist who is not a breast imaging specialist. You will still go to the Vidant facility to receive the imaging. You should confirm with the staff at your appointment that your images will be sent to CBIS for interpretation. Click here for the information you will need for your appointment.

Why should I choose Carolina Breast Imaging Specialists?

Carolina Breast Imaging Specialists was founded by Dr. Bruce Schroeder. Dr. Schroeder has been the leading Breast Imaging Radiologist in Eastern North Carolina since 1996.  Dr. Schroeder is nationally and internationally known as a leading expert in breast imaging and particularly in 3D mammography. He developed and supervised the breast imaging standards and quality assurance programs for all Vidant facilities.  Formerly with Eastern Radiologists, Dr. Schroeder is currently the lead physician at Carolina Breast Imaging Specialists.  When you choose CBIS, you are assured that your examination will be supervised and interpreted by an experienced radiologist who is specially trained and dedicated to the field of breast imaging.  CBIS is the only practice available to you where you can be 100% assured that your exam will be done by a specialist.

Will it cost me more to choose Carolina Breast Imaging Specialists?

No. There is no difference in cost between the specialists 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.

Do you participate with my insurance plan?
