Meet Bradie James

Our program

The Importance of Cancer Prevention

In 2002, we launched a comprehensive program to provide prevention and early detection services to find cancer in its earliest stage when better outcomes are more likely. Together with partners, we screen people for breast, colorectal, oral, prostate and skin cancers throughout our 30-parish and county service area. These efforts are nationally recognized as best practices in outreach and are making a positive difference in lives across Louisiana and Southwest Mississippi.

A variety of machines, including x-rays, CT scans and MRI scans, can be used to create pictures of the structures inside the body to rule out or diagnose a certain medical condition.

Our innovative practices have improved radiation-based imaging and treatment technology are a result of collaboration between the Center’s physicians and medical physicists. 

Recognized as a center of excellence, our Women’s Imaging and Breast Center provides advanced diagnostic services and greater comfort locally in the state of Louisiana.
