Beaumont's only locally owned full-service diagnostic imaging center

The ODC is the vision of Dr. Brent Mainwaring, long-time Beaumont resident and a skilled radiologist with more than 20 years of experience.

Over the years, Dr. Mainwaring noticed a disturbing trend in local healthcare. More and more hospitals, providers and radiology centers were owned and operated by out-of-town or out-of-state corporate conglomerates. Their demand for higher profits was affecting the ability of community doctors to deliver care they believed was in the best interests of their patients.

In his own field, Dr. Mainwaring found it difficult or impossible to convince corporate America that his patients deserved access to the latest, state-of-the-art imaging technology—technology that represented a significant improvement in image quality over equipment manufactured just ten years ago. He was also alarmed at the emerging trend of routinely outsourcing professional radiology interpretations to unknown radiologists in other towns, cities or states. No one feels comfortable with the unknown, much less unknown physicians treating our family members.

There had to be a better way to treat patients without corporate interference and at the same time, maintain local personal relationships. So Dr. Mainwaring decided to build a diagnostic imaging center where he would feel confident sending members of his own family.

The result is a state-of-the-art, aesthetically welcoming outpatient imaging center that offers the full range of medical imaging tests in a comfortable, relaxing and non-clinical environment. Expanded office hours accommodate our patients' busy schedules. Flexible scheduling helps doctors and patients to get the tests they need in a timely fashion. A dedicated women’s center is located in a separate “enclave” within the center to offer greater privacy and comfort.

By remaining locally owned and operated, ongoing improvements and investments in imaging technology can be made without interference. And because all imaging tests are interpreted locally by board-certified radiologists, test results are always available within 24 hours.
