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-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 gain 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 outsourcing professional radiology interpretation to groups out of state, and in some cases, out of the country! Not only could this potentially jeopardize the quality of the test interpretations, but it also added days—and in some cases weeks—to the already agonizingly long wait times experienced by patients.

There had to be a better way, 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.
