Nebraska’s Specialty Medical Options on the Rise
The area’s largest radiology group, Advanced Medical Imaging (AMI; AMImaging.com), is continuing to expand the specialty imaging services available to Lincoln residents and rural Nebraska communities. By the end of 2017, AMI will consist of over 30 radiologists, serving all of Lincoln and over half of the critical access hospitals in the state. Having a group of this size in Lincoln means that patients can receive local quality service 24/7 as AMI does not out-source any of their radiology work, even during the night.
Many of AMI’s physicians, including three that will join the group this summer, have sub-specialties not accessible before in the area. By having physicians who have dedicated years of their lives to hone their skills in specific areas means better care. Radiology specialties in this local group include Pediatric, Breast, Musculoskeletal, Body Imaging, Nuclear Medicine, and Neuroradiology, which diagnoses abnormalities in the central and peripheral nervous system, spine, and head and neck. Advanced Medical Imaging also has three Interventional Radiologists. These physicians are the surgeons of radiology and use imaging to treat conditions through minimally invasive procedures.
Patients looking for specialized treatment in any of these areas are encouraged to visit AMImaging.com or call Advanced Medical Imaging at (402) 484-6677 to set up a consultation.
