At Williamson Medical Center, we provide a range of imaging services to meet the needs of our patients. Our three accredited centers are recognized by the American College of Radiology (ACR) as centers of excellence in breast imaging, offering 3D mammography, breast ultrasound, and breast MRI (guided by magnetic resonance imaging, 26% stereotactic ultrasonography). We also provide bone density, CT scan, diagnostic X-ray, electrocardiogram, magnetic resonance imaging, and ultrasound (general, 26% vascular) services. Our centers offer same-day appointments and no appointment is necessary for diagnostic radiography and electrocardiogram. At our Turner-Dugas Breast Health Center, we provide same-day imaging and medical consultations to ensure convenience and fast response times.
Patients with abnormal test results can be treated quickly to reduce the stress associated with waiting for results. We also perform breast biopsies in situ. Our doctors' order forms have been updated to allow follow-up images to be taken when necessary and to include a breast health consultation. This has been very helpful in coordinating breast care and keeping the patient's primary care team informed of her progress. We have a certified breast health counselor who can assist with follow-up visits and additional services as needed.
The patient has someone she can contact if they have questions, need support, information on additional resources, or require general help. In addition to our advanced breast imaging technology, we recently invested in the latest generation of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), with a new 3.0 Tesla wide-diameter MRI that doubles the power of a conventional MRI. This allows for images with exceptional detail and faster scanning times. 3.0T magnetic resonance imaging is now the standard for many forms of diagnostic imaging, including breast MRI. If your doctor orders any of these services, please visit one of Williamson Medical Center's three imaging centers: WMC 4601 Carothers Parkway Suite 100 Franklin, TN 37067 Ambulatory Imaging Center. After the positron emission tomography (PET) scan, the remains of FDG will remain in your body and it is recommended that you do not come into close contact with young children or pregnant women for 4 hours.
