AMI Spotlight: Medical Director of Wall Township

Dr. Stephen McManus is a board certified, fellowship trained radiologists at the AMI Wall Township office, located at 2399 Highway 34, Unit B in Manasquan. Dr. McManus is the Medical Director.

Dr. Stephen McManus received his medical degree from Jefferson Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University. His residency in diagnostic radiology was completed at Hahnemann University Hospital and his fellowship in cross-sectional imaging was completed at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. Dr. McManus has been with AMI for 16 years.

This year, Dr. McManus was named a Castle Connolly Top Doctor in the specialty of Diagnostic Radiology for his excellence in medical care and practice. He believes the technology available and knowledgeable staff is what makes Atlantic Medical Imaging a wonderful place to work. Interpreting challenging cases and interacting with referring physicians is what Dr. McManus finds most rewarding.

After Dr. McManus and his family traveled to Tenwek Hospital in Kenya on missionary trips, the idea of using the internet to have cases read by doctors in the U.S. arose. In 2014, he assisted in the creation of an internet based technology system called Tenwek Teleradiology. This allows him and 30 other radiologists from across the country to read cases from Tenwek Hospital. Since its inception, Dr. McManus and his team have read well over 2,000 cases. When he is not working or volunteering, he enjoys reading and spending time with his wife and children. 

The next time you visit AMI in Wall Township, say hello to Dr. McManus!
