For over sixty years, PrimeImaging has built a reputation for introducing superior imaging technology that makes a difference to the physicians and patients of our community. Combined with a multi-talented team of radiologists who hold on to the tried and true principles of integrity, compassion, and commitment to our patients, PrimeImaging the number one choice all imaging needs.

A full range of diagnostic imaging services is available at PrimeImaging’s practice locations. Our Battlefield Imaging, Chattanooga Outpatient Center, and Tennessee Imaging and Vein Center locations offer MRIs, ultrasound and breast imaging, diagnostic x-rays, digital fluoroscopy, and nuclear medicine among others in a convenient outpatient setting. Battlefield Imaging adds state-of-the-art PET/CT, and digital mammography to its comprehensive offerings, while the Tennessee Imaging & Vein Center also provides top of the line treatments for vein issues like varicose and spider veins. Several types of biopsies and therapeutic injections can also be performed at these locations.

Diagnostic PET/CT of Chattanooga focuses on PET and CT imaging exclusively.  High-resolution positron emission tomography (PET) for oncology and neurology, full-service CT with 32 slices per second capability, and full-service diagnostic ultrasound are currently offered.

Chattanooga Outpatient Center recently added the new 3T Open MRI to better accommodate patients with pain, mobility, and respiratory needs. With faster scan times and superior image quality, there is less need for sedation, and it costs the same as lower field MRI scans.

By creating a vast area network and utilizing features of Chattanooga's Gig network, PrimeImaging radiologists can transfer images from one practice location to another for consultation with a subspecialty expert at a different branch. This level of communication results in improved patient care on a daily basis.
