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
PrimeImaging & Vein Center-Gunbarrel: 1604 Gunbarrel Rd., Chattanooga, TN 37421

Jeff Styles, I Believe You - And Response (5)

I am glad that Jeff Styles presented the details of the event on his website.  Just because the government alleges a crime does not mean guilty. A criminal charge is an allegation by government. Sure, that allegation can be very serious, but the charge is still an unproven allegation until a court of law and Lady Justice has her review of the proof.  A person gets ... (click for more)

I got a great laugh when I heard a consortium of “the greatest newspapers in the world” would band together – as one mighty voice – and collectively castigate President Trump for his repeated attacks on newspapers, their editors and their reporters. “Our words will differ,” said Marjorie Pritchard of the Boston Globe, who called for the group-fest, “but we can agree that such attacks ...
