Imaging services we offer

We offer a variety of testing and imaging services to help your doctor determine the best plan of action for your care, including:

  • Computed tomography (CT)
  • Interventional radiology
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Nuclear medicine
  • Ultrasound

We also provide patients access to more advanced imaging test options, such as:

Computed tomography angiography (CTA)

Computed tomography angiography (CTA) is a type of test that combines a CT scan with a special dye to produce pictures of blood vessels and tissues in part of your body. Coronary CTA detects symptoms of coronary artery disease in patients who have had angioplasties, stents and bypass grafts.

Electroencephalogram (EEG)

Electrophysiology involves monitoring the brain's electrical activity. Through an EEG, your doctor can diagnose seizures and assess brain function affected by certain conditions and diseases, such as a brain tumor or sleep disorder.

Interventional radiology

Interventional radiology is a specialized field within radiology. It is used as a diagnostic tool, as other forms of imaging, but may also be used as a method of treatment. In these cases, it allows less risk, pain and recovery time compared to other forms of surgery. Interventional radiology uses X-rays and MRI in addition to other imaging techniques to insert a catheter into the body, usually in an artery.

Advanced imaging technology

Our goal is to make accurate results available to referring physicians as quickly as possible so our patients can get the treatment they need, faster. To do this, our imaging and diagnostic services are obtained and managed by a fully digital platform called the Picture Archive and Communications System (PACS). PACS allows fast remote access to digital images and reports 24/7. This enables healthcare providers to get vital results and information about your health within hours of your imaging procedure.

Cancer screenings

We partner with Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute to offer the most advanced screenings to diagnose a variety of cancers. Some of these exams include mammograms, CTs, ultrasounds and MRIs. If you receive a cancer diagnosis, we are able to connect you with the largest family of cancer specialists and care teams in Middle Tennessee for complete cancer care services.
