When it comes to your breast health – experience and accreditation matter. The Oak Ridge Breast Center performs over 18,000 mammograms each year. Each one is read by a board-certified breast radiologist – a specialist who practices exclusively in breast health.
Dr. Thomas Charles Lemond, who has joined the Oak Ridge Breast Center as the facility’s new medical director, is both board-certified and fellowship trained. He received his medical degree and completed his diagnostic radiology residency at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis. He then went on to complete a Breast Imaging Fellowship at the Methodist Breast Center also in Memphis. He is board-certified in radiology and a member of the American Board of Radiology and Radiological Society of North America.
Accredited by the American College of Radiology in every modality, Oak Ridge Breast Center is proud to offer registered, experienced, dedicated, and compassionate technologists, and boasts a perfect FDA inspection record. In addition, the Oak Ridge Breast Center is designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology’s Commission on Quality and Safety and the Commission on Breast Imaging. The center is one of an elite group of facilities in Tennessee to have received this distinction.
