Wayne Medical Center Services

Diagnostic Imaging

Wayne Medical Center's Imaging Department is staffed with skilled personnel who possess imaging expertise in the areas of CT, MRI, mammography and ultrasound. The expertise of a board-certified radiologist is available seven days a week, 24 hours a day.

We are also committed to helping you maintain your health by offering wellness screenings to detect blockages in the circulatory system, cancer and stones.

Below is a description of the imaging services available at Wayne Medical Center.



Computed Tomography (CT)

A CT scan uses X-rays combined with computer technology to produce multiple cross-sectional images in rapid sequence, allowing the radiologist to see the bones and soft tissues within the body more clearly. Wayne Medical Center utilizes a 20-slice scanner that allows technologists to use the lowest dose of radiation possible while providing exceptional image quality.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Magnetic Resonance Imaging, or MRI, is an advanced imaging method that produces very clear images of the human body without the use of X-rays. This technology enables physicians to detect developing diseases or abnormalities earlier than ever before. MRI uses a powerful, but harmless, magnetic field and radio waves, like the kind that transmit your favorite FM music. The combination of radio waves and magnetic field produce detailed images of body structures such as the brain, the spine and other vital organs.

Digital Mammography

Thousands of women die each year from breast cancer. When breast cancer is detected in the early stages many women can go on to lead normal, healthy lives. The most valuable tool used to detect breast cancer and save lives is digital mammography, a simple non-invasive technique of obtaining X-rays of the breast to detect abnormalities.

The Mammography Department at Wayne Medical Center is fully accredited by the American College of Radiology and the Food and Drug Administration. All mammograms performed at the hospital are reviewed by a board-certified radiologist. When necessary, ultrasound may also be used to further investigate any abnormalities.

Wayne Medical Center offers digital screening mammograms without a physician's order. To schedule an appointment or receive additional information, call 931.722.2060.

Bone Densitometry

Bone densitometry measures changes in bone density. This test is a valuable tool your doctors can use to monitor and treat osteopenia or osteoporosis, diseases in which the bone's mineral content and density are low and the risk of fractures is high.


Wayne Medical Center offers a wide range of ultrasound procedures, including abdominal, vascular, gynecology, cardiology, urology and other applications. Ultrasound uses technology that sends high frequency sound waves into the body. The sound waves are directed at a specific organ or, in the case of obstetrical ultrasound, to a growing fetus. The sound waves bounce back as a series of echoes, which create an image. In addition to ultrasound procedures ordered by a physician for diagnostic purposes, Wayne Medical Center offers optional 4-D ultrasound for expectant parents who want to view their growing baby.

Outpatient Imaging Hours:

Monday – Friday

8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
