The Latest Imaging and Diagnostic Technology
One of the first steps in treating any condition is an accurate diagnosis. In many cases, the starting point for doctors to make that diagnosis is to have clear, accurate images of the body. At Saint Francis Hospital-Memphis, we use two outpatient diagnostic imaging centers to get this vital information for accurate diagnosis. At TotalCare and Park Avenue Diagnostics, we offer a wide range of diagnostic services in a convenient and patient-friendly environment.
Diagnostic Imaging Services
Our services include MRI scan on two systems (open and closed), CT scan, nuclear medicine, ultrasound, bone densitometry, fluoroscopic radiography and diagnostic imaging/routine radiography. As departments of Saint Francis Hospital-Memphis, we are Medicare-certified and accredited by The Joint Commission.
With two imaging center locations, we are able to offer flexible appointment times, easy scheduling and reduced waiting time. If you have questions about our services or would like to make an appointment, please give us a call at (901) 765-3279 or find a physcian online.

We Offer the Following Diagnostic Services:
MRI - provides detailed images of the inside of the body using strong magnets and radio waves. We offer services on two different units: a 1.5 Tesla closed system and an 0.7 Tesla open system.
CT Scan - combines X-rays and computer scans to create images of the body. The result is a detailed picture that can show soft tissues, organs and bones.
Nuclear Medicine- involves the use of small amounts of radioactive materials (or tracers) to help diagnose and treat a variety of diseases. (At Total Care Imaging only)
Ultrasound - uses sound waves to form pictures of the body's interior.
Bone Densitometry - uses low-energy X-rays to scan the lower back, hip or forearm. This helps to help diagnose osteoporosis, a disease that weakens bones and makes them more brittle and susceptible to fracture. (At Total Care Imaging only)
Fluoroscopic Radiography - an X-ray that obtains real-time images of the body's internal structures.
Diagnostic Imaging/Routine Radiography - uses a small amount of radiation to create x-ray images of bones and organs.
Digital Mammography – Screening and Diagnostic Mammography is offered at Park Avenue Diagnostic Center and the Women’s Center at Saint Francis Hospital – Memphis.
