High Quality Care with a Personal Touch
A successful patient experience with diagnostic imaging has to be just the right combination of technology and people, but each one in its proper place. Technology is important, but there are times when nothing beats a real, live person in lieu of a machine.
That’s the nucleus of what makes the Outpatient Imaging Center here at Williamson Medical Center so unique. Patients will never check in at a kiosk or be routed through chains of voicemail prompts when they call. Those are some of the times you prefer actual interaction with a real person, and that’s exactly what we provide.
Accredited by the American College of Radiology as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence in Mammography, Breast Ultrasound and Percutaneous Breast Biopsy, we are proud to offer our newest technology, Genius 3D Mammography, which detects up to 40 percent more invasive breast cancers and may help reduce false positives.

Mammography and Breast Health imaging
We offer on-site ultrasound-guided biopsies that in many cases can be done on the same day. In the past, a biopsy required a hospital visit and then a surgical consult and it could take up to a week to get results.
With The Turner-Dugas Breast Health Center at Williamson Medical Center adjacent to our Outpatient Imaging Center, we can provide imaging and physician consult on the same day providing convenience and rapid result turnaround time. Patients with abnormal test results have the opportunity to be seen quickly to minimize the anxiety associated with awaiting test results. We have also updated our physician order forms to allow follow-up imaging when indicated to include a breast health consultation, which has been very helpful in rapid result turn around time.
Because we work hand-in-hand with the The Turner-Dugas Breast Health Center at Williamson Medical Center, we are able to eliminate some of the patient’s anxiety about what they should do next. We have a certified breast health navigator who can help coordinate follow-up appointments and additional services if needed. The patient has someone they can call for questions, support, additional resource information, or when general help is needed.
In addition to 3D mammography, we also offer stereotactic biopsies, which are done when a physician sees micro-calcifications on a mammogram that are small and spread out. We have recently purchased new stereotactic equipment that will allow us to perform these every day, on-site, which will eliminate the wait time for a patient needing a stereotactic procedure.
Our new Affirm stereotactic equipment offers a more comfortable, upright position that will enable a faster procedure.
Full Spectrum of Imaging Services
In addition to our amazing mammography technology, we also offer ultrasound, bone density/Dexa, EKG, general X-Ray, nuclear medicine and fluoroscopic procedures. Williamson Medical Center has also invested in the latest generation of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), providing a new 3.0 Tesla, wide bore MRI offering double the strength of the typical MRI, which results in exceptional detail in imaging and faster scan times. The 3.0T MRI is now the gold standard for many forms of diagnostic imaging. So if your physician orders any of the above, ask to be seen at one of Williamson Medical Center’s three imaging locations.
