Since 2003, GNI has owned and operated its own imaging facility which is conveniently located across the street from the practice’s primary location in the Macon, Georgia. The center, staffed by four technologists with over 80 years of combined experience, is accredited by the American College of Radiology and the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. Through the imaging center, GNI offers on-site MRIs, state-of-the-art CT scans with 16-slice technology, same day X-Rays, and an angiogram package for vascular imaging. Benefits of operating our own facility include quicker turnaround times for results meaning fewer office visits and a consistency of assessment and post-op follow up imaging. The MRI is equipped with a 1 tesla magnet that weighs 60,000 pounds; with this technology, the technicians can adjust the frequency to best compensate for hardware that patients may have. The result is imaging that is 2 to 3 times better than that of an open MRI. GNI’s innovative Angio Suite is specifically designed for vascular imaging, or angiograms, in which the vascular system within the brain is mapped out through a CT scan; this tool is essential in the treatment of aneurysms and stroke cases.
