    • About us

      Palmetto Imaging is a network of independent outpatient diagnostic testing facilities conveniently located in the capital city of Columbia, South Carolina. We have four convenient locations in the Midlands - West Columbia, Irmo, Northeast Columbia, and Downtown Columbia.

      American College of Radiology Accreditation

      Our Irmo facility is located off I-26 on Woodrow Street, just off St. Andrews Road in the Irmo Wellness Center.
      Our West Columbia facility is located on Highway 378 between I-26 and I-20, just down from Lexington Medical Center’s main campus.
      Our Northeast facility, ImageCare, is Northeast Columbia's only full-service outpatient radiology facility and is located at 710 Rabon Road, Suite 100, just off I-77 at Farrow Road.
      Our Downtown facility is located at the corner of Lady and Marion Streets, two blocks from the State Capital building and Prisma Health Baptist Hospital.

      Palmetto Imaging is committed to providing convenient, high quality radiology services at a price you can afford. Did you know when choosing a free-standing imaging facility there are significant savings in out-of-pocket expense? Palmetto Imaging exams are 40-60% less expensive than area hospitals and our charges include the radiologist’s interpretation of your exam. At most hospital facilities you will receive a bill for the exam and a separate bill from the radiologist reading your exam.

      We offer MRI, CT, Ultrasound and X-ray services at a cost 2-3 times less than area hospitals. But you will not sacrifice quality for cost. Our radiologists are board certified, our technologists are registered and certified in their respective modalities, and our equipment is evaluated annually by independent medical physicists. In addition we offer CT cardiac scoring and Carotid IMT ultrasound screening to assess a patient’s risk of heart disease and stroke. Our large bore MRI can accommodate patients who are claustrophobic or overweight. We also offer 3D reconstruction views for both MRI and CT studies.

      Our on-site, fellowship trained, and board-certified radiologists will provide your referring doctor a written interpretation of your exam within 24-48 hours of your appointment. Our staff is able to pre-certify your insurance and our technologists are available to answer any questions you may have about your exam. Referring doctors can access their patients’ images and reports through our secure online web-based portal.

    • Radiologist bios


      Our radiologists are all board-certified, having successfully completed rigorous education and training standards. Most of our radiologists are fellowship trained in specialty areas, including breast imaging, cardiovascular imaging, computed tomography (CT), interventional radiology, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), musculoskeletal, neuroradiology, neurointerventional, nuclear medicine and pediatric radiology. South Carolina Diagnostic Imaging’s skilled and experienced radiologists offer patients and referring physicians the best in outpatient imaging across the region.

      I had a very positive experience at this location. Whitney called to reschedule my appointment and was very professional and understanding about my work requirements. After arriving with my paperwork completed, Megan checked me in. She was very friendly. Angie was my tech and did a great job. She was kind and explained everything that would be happening. She showed concern for my comfort and played my requested genre of music while I was having the scan done. I really recommend this place for an scans or images you need done.

      I was very nervous when I arrived due to the fact I don't like needles but the gentleman that gave me the shot was excellent. The only negative thing was being strapped down for the test and the length of time I was in machine. Overall it was a good experience

      I have used PI for both MRIs and CAT scans and have found PI totally professional, very timely to get appointments, quick to analyze and report to the doctors, while being much cheaper than the hospitals. If a need arises, ask your doctor to write an order to Palmetto Imaging and save both time and a lot of money while getting professional service.
