    • Pricing

      Compare the Difference

      Not all imaging facilities are the same; price can vary greatly, even if you have insurance. If your doctor orders an MRI, CT, X-Ray or Ultrasound, you have a choice where that test is performed. Choosing a non-hospital owned facility like South Carolina Diagnostic Imaging can save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Below is a self-pay price comparison grid.

      Request a Price Estimate

      If your healthcare provider has written you an imaging referral for a diagnostic test, we will be happy to provide you with a no-commitment price quote (no appointment necessary). To request an estimate at South Carolina Diagnostic Imaging, please click the button below, complete the form below and click "Submit." A financial services representative will contact you to collect additional information and provide you with an estimate.

    • 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 three convenient locations in the Midlands - West Columbia, Irmo, and downtown Columbia.

      American College of Radiology Accreditation

      Our Irmo facility is located off I-26 down Lake Murray Blvd. off St. Andrews Road.
      Our West Columbia facility is located on 378 between I-26 and I-20, just down from Lexington Medical Center.
      Our downtown facility is located at the corner of Lady and Marion Streets, two blocks from the State Capital building and Palmetto Health Baptist.

      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 provider you can save yourself up to 2-3 times out of pocket expense? We have the lowest out of pocket for all imaging needs compared to that of a hospital setting as well as discounted un-insured rates. We also bill globally, which means the radiologist interpretation of the images are included in the already low rate! At most hospital facilities you will receive a bill for the exam as well as a bill from the radiologist reading the exam.

      We offer MRI, CT, Ultrasound, Arthrograms, and X-ray with extended morning and evening hours available. Our X-ray services are available for walk in hours at our Downtown and Irmo facilities; patients must have a signed physician’s order. 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 and open MRIs can accommodate patients who are claustrophobic or overweight. We also offer 3D reconstruction views for both MRI and CT studies.

      Palmetto Imaging radiologists are on-site and board certified and we guarantee a 24 hour report turnaround to the referring doctor’s office. Our staff is able to pre-certify your insurance and our technologists are available to answer any questions you may have about your test. Referring doctors can access their patients’ images and reports through our secure online web-based portal.

    • Radiologist bios


      Our radiologists are all board-certified by the American Board of Radiology, which ensures that they have completed rigorous education and training standards. Many of our physicians are certified and 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. With more than a dozen highly skilled and experienced radiologists on staff, South Carolina Diagnostic Imaging offers patients and referring physicians in our region the best in medical imaging.
