Diagnostic Radiology Consultants Consolidate Locations Under New Brand

Wednesday, November 1, 2017

The locally owned and operated Battlefield Imaging, Chattanooga Outpatient Center, Tennessee Imaging & Vein Center and Diagnostic PET/CT of Chattanooga are coming together under the name PrimeImaging. 

All four locations are owned and operated by the local radiologist group, Diagnostic Radiology Consultants. 

“For more than 60 years, local residents have trusted the radiologists at DRC with their medical imaging needs," said Dr. Jim Busch, CEO and president of DRC and Prime Imaging.  "As we’ve grown to include four major locations, it was time to give all of our local centers the same name. Many patients aren’t aware that, in most situations, they can pick their radiologists just like they can select their family doctor. Now, they can simply ask their referring physician to send them to PrimeImaging for fast results, the best technology and significant cost savings.”   

Those in need of an MRI, PET/CT, ultrasound, nuclear medicine, diagnostic x-ray, mammography or CT scans can receive those services at PrimeImaging. Additionally, vein treatments are available at their Gunbarrel location.    

“When people think of prime, it’s elevated; it is access to the best service,” said Dr. Busch. “That’s what they will find at any of our facilities. Now it’s more convenient than ever for our patients to access thoughtful, quality care at our centers.” 

Locations include:
PrimeImaging Battlefield: 4700 Battlefield Pkwy., Suite 100, Ringgold, GA 30736
PrimeImaging Chattanooga Outpatient Center: 1301 McCallie Ave., Chattanooga, TN 37404
PrimeImaging PET/CT: 2205 McCallie Ave., Suite 400, Chattanooga, TN 37404

Special interest homebuilders profit, but citizens pay.  More sediment pollution and paid for with ... (click for more)
