Who We Are
Excellence in service is our top priority as we focus on providing consistent quality care to each and every patient.
Our rich history has been supported by our ability to adapt to medical and technological advancement, and we have proudly served South Georgia for more than 65 years.
With expertise in interventional, diagnostic, neurological, and musculoskeletal radiology, our staff is prepared to provide accurate assessment and advisement to your physicians.
Our team of specialized medical professionals works to provide accurate analysis to your doctors to ensure that you receive the best medical care possible.
In 1946, Dr. Franklin G. (Tex) Eldridge began his radiology practice with only one employee in Valdosta at the corner of Patterson Street and Brookwood Drive. In his first year, he was one of only three radiologists in a 35 county service area. In 1955, he moved his radiology practice to the Doctors’ Building adjacent to the then newly constructed Pineview General Hospital, now South Georgia Medical Center.
Since that time, our practice has grown extensively, now thriving with six experienced, hospital-based radiologists. Each radiologist is board certified and fellowship trained in interventional radiology, neuroradiology, or musculoskeletal radiology.
Our practice has served the South Georgia area for over 65 years, and is committed to continuing to offer the highest quality in radiology services. We continue to offer quality driven medical imaging services with the highest level of professionalism and efficiency. Our goal is to continue to be the eye of medicine, helping physicians to detect disease and illness. Our radiologists have been and continue to be the doctors’ doctor, providing quality interpretations to referring physicians in a timely manner.
Our mission is to provide the best service
and care for you and your family
An X-ray is a quick, painless test that exposes parts of the body to a small dose of radiation to produce images of the structures inside your body, particularly your bones. They are the oldest and most common form of medical imaging.
Computed Tomography (CT) combines many X-ray images with the aid of a computer to generate cross-sectional views and, if needed, three-dimensional images of the internal organs and structures of the body. A CT scan can be used to study all parts of your body including, head, chest, abdomen, and pelvis.
Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves, with no radiation, to produce images of structures within your body. Ultrasound images can show the structure and movement of the body’s internal organs, as well as blood flowing through arteries and veins. Those images can provide valuable information for diagnosing and treating a variety of diseases and conditions.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a technique that uses a magnetic field and radio waves, with no radiation, to create detailed images of the organs and tissues within the body. MRI has much higher detail for soft tissue structures, and therefore, often does a better job of diagnosing issues in your soft tissues, joints, tendons and ligaments.
A mammogram is an x-ray picture of the breast. They are used as a screening tool to detect early breast cancer, and or detect and diagnose breast disease.
A Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scan is a type of imaging test that uses a radioactive substance to look for disease within the body. It measures important body functions, such as blood flow, oxygen use, and sugar metabolism, to help physicians evaluate how well organs and tissues are functioning.
Nuclear medicine is a branch of medical imaging that uses small amounts of radioactive material to diagnose and determine the severity of a variety of diseases and abnormalities in the body.
Also known as vascular and interventional radiology (VIR) or surgical radiology, is image-guided diagnosis and treatment of diseases in every organ system. The concept behind interventional radiology is to diagnose and treat patients using the least invasive techniques.
