Los Angeles, California-based West Coast Medical Diagnostic Services ranks first by a substantial margin in our list, with an 18.8% share of total imaging procedures performed January through August of 2022. Graves Gilbert Clinic in Bowling Green, Kentucky ranks a distant second with a 6.7% share.

The share of total procedures drops sharply to approximately 1% for the imaging centers ranked 8 through 11 in our list. This indicates a wide dispersion of procedure volumes across numerous imaging centers with potential for future consolidation through merger and acquisition.
