AMI Begins Participation in World’s Largest Brain Amyloid Scanning Research Study

Imaging Dementia - Evidence for Amyloid Scanning at Atlantic Medical Imaging

Nation-wide IDEAS Study to determine clinical value of PET scans in Alzheimer’s disease diagnosis.

Atlantic Medical Imaging (AMI) has been selected to participate in the world’s largest brain amyloid scanning research study. The IDEAS (Imaging Dementia – Evidence for Amyloid Scanning) Study will follow more than 18,000 Medicare patients nation-wide to evaluate the clinical value of a brain positron emission tomography (PET) scan to detect the hallmark brain amyloid accumulation of Alzheimer’s disease in diagnosing and managing treatment of patients age 65 and older with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) or dementia of uncertain cause. Information from this scan can help exclude underlying Alzheimer’s disease, and may help guide patient management.

AMI Holiday Toy Drive Yields Hundreds of Toys

AMI Holiday Toy Drive Yields Hundreds of Toys

Atlantic Medical Imaging’s Annual Holiday Toy Drive resulted in the donation of hundreds of toys to three worthy organizations: Toys for Tots and Toys for Kids, both of which serve Atlantic and Cape May counties, as well as the Ocean County Sheriff’s Department’s annual toy drive.
The AMI toy drive was conducted from November 30 – December 18, 2015, during which AMI employees, patients and community members were encouraged to drop off toys at all 11 AMI office locations in Atlantic, Cape May, Ocean and Monmouth counties.
“This is another meaningful way for us to give something back to the communities we serve,” said Dr. Robert M. Glassberg, President/CEO of AMI. “The programs, services and partnerships undertaken by AMI and the AMI Foundation are designed to enhance the quality of life and improve the health status of community residents.  We believe this Toy Drive is consistent with that mission and vision.”
The AMI Foundation is a non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to enhancing the level of healthcare for community residents by collaborating with local community groups to support programs that address critical health needs. Since its inception in 2003, the Foundation has provided approximately $1 million to various charitable organizations throughout South Jersey and central New Jersey.

AMI Spotlight: Provider Relations Representatives

The AMI Spotlight introduces you to our Provider Relations Representatives. A Provider Relations Representative is responsible for developing and maintaining business relationships with AMI's current and prospective customers. The representatives are the face of Atlantic Medical Imaging, often visiting referring physician offices and providing up to date information on AMI services and assisting with any questions or concerns the office may have about AMI. The representatives also spend time at various community events to educate the public about our services. 

Please meet (from left to right) Paul, Mary Jane, Kathy and Art. Paul and Mary Jane focus on the South Jersey region while Kathy and Art focus on the Central and North Jersey region. 

Paul has been with AMI since 2012. He enjoys the positive attitude of his coworkers and looks forward to receiving a welcome greeting when he visits a referring physician’s office. Paul also works as a DJ for weddings and parties on the weekends. His fun personality makes him excel in both fields. When he isn't working, Paul often takes Caribbean Cruises with his family. 

Mary Jane has been with AMI for 16 years and loves her job as a Provider Relations Representative. Being a liaison between the referring physicians and AMI is what Mary Jane enjoys most about her job. She strives to provide the best customer service to her clients and will do her best to meet their needs. When she isn't working, Mary Jane is very active in her church. She has been a member of Greentree Church in Egg Harbor Township for 10 years and also serves on their Hospitality Committee. She also enjoys being a teacher assistant for the 2 and 3 year old children who attend the church's Sunday school. In her free time, Mary Jane enjoys spending quality time with her husband and seeing their children and grandchildren! 

Kathy has been a Provider Relations Representative for 9 years. She believes the quality of customer service and the vast array of services provided at Atlantic Medical Imaging make AMI a great company to work for and for patients to visit. Developing relationships with the referring physician offices is what Kathy finds as the most rewarding aspect of her job. Kathy keeps busy in her free time. She enjoys working out, baking and painting. She also fosters dogs and helps place them in a good home.

Art has been with Atlantic Medical Imaging for 5 years. Knowing he plays a part in why physicians send their patients to AMI is extremely rewarding for Art. He knows the offices send patients to AMI because they trust us with their patients, and AMI's standard of care is a step above the rest. Previously, Art served as an Operations Specialist in the Navy and is now a member of the American Legion 348 in Brick. In his free time, he enjoys taking his Harley out for a ride and practicing Jujitsu. Art also enjoys spending time with his wife and two daughters. In the summer, you can find them anchored out on the bay in their boat.
