Chesapeake Medical Imaging Participates in Major Study
to Improve Alzheimer’s, Dementia Diagnoses

As a registered amyloid PET imaging site, Chesapeake Medical Imaging recently worked with area specialists to participate in Imaging Dementia—Evidence for Amyloid Scanning (IDEAS), a $100 million study to determine the clinical usefulness of scanning brain amyloid deposits to help evaluate patients with memory loss. In all, CMI completed Medicare-covered amyloid PET (positron emission tomography) scans for 136 patients over the past several months.

“We are thrilled to contribute to this important research, which will provide critical information regarding diagnoses, and treatment of those suffering memory loss,” says Dr. Kevin Berger, a respected imaging expert in Alzheimer’s disease, who has developed quantitative analysis tools for scan interpretation.

With no single test currently available, diagnosing Alzheimer’s is based on patient history, physical examination and cognitive testing. Amyloid PET imaging represents a potential major advance in the assessment of people with cognitive impairment, by visualizing plaques in the brain –prime suspects in damaging and killing nerve cells. Previously, these plaques could only be detected by examining the brain at autopsy.

Nearly 19,000 patients are part of the IDEAS study, which is sponsored by the American College of Radiology (ACR) and American College of Radiology Imaging Network, with funding and direction provided by the Alzheimer’s Association, the ACR and the manufacturers of the FDA-approved radiopharmaceuticals for amyloid imaging.

The CMI team looks forward to monitoring the results of the study as they become available, and participating in future trials to support this effort.

Chesapeake Medical Imaging is Maryland’s premier provider of radiology services, with 14 locations across Anne Arundel County, the Baltimore area, and the Eastern Shore.

The prestigious selection — based solely on the results of employee feedback — measures numerous aspects of workplace culture.

“Our research has proven that what’s most important to employees is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together,” says Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage LLC, the leading research firm that conducted the survey. “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”

Hidden Beauty: Exploring the Aesthetics of Medical Science

Category : NEWS

The Mitchell Gallery
October 26 – December 10, 2017

CMI is pleased to sponsor this collaborative project by a scientist and an artist from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, which asks the viewer to consider the aesthetics of human disease, a dynamically powerful force of nature that acts without regard to race, religion, or culture.

More than sixty medical science professionals present photographs of visually stunning patterns of different diseases affecting various areas of the human anatomy in this exhibition. Captured with a variety of imaging technology that range from spectral karyotyping to scanning electron microscopy, we see beauty in the delicate lacework of fungal hyphae invading a blood vessel, the structure of the normal cerebellum, and the desperate drive of metastasizing cancer cells. Ultimately, this series of images will leave the viewer with an understanding and appreciation of visual beauty inherent within the field of modern medical science.

This exhibition is a collaborative exhibition and book by Norman Barker & Christine Iacobuzio-Donahue.

What’s Up Doc?

Dr. Mark Baganz Named Top Radiologist for 2017-2018 
Chesapeake Medical Imaging Annapolis & Easton Best in Radiology

Congratulations to Dr. Mark Baganz, who has again been named a What’s Up Magazine Top Doctor, and kudos to the Chesapeake Medical Imaging (CMI) team on first-time honors as Best of Annapolis and Best of Eastern Shore in Radiology.

“Excellence in service and care is what we are all about, and we appreciate the What’s Up Magazine folks for their great work in polling and informing people about area providers,” says Dr. Baganz.  “Of course, the votes of our patients and their doctors are what make this recognition meaningful; and we are honored to be partners in their diagnostic and preventative health care.”

Dr. Baganz founded CMI in 2001 to provide the highest quality radiology services available anywhere.  Under his leadership, CMI has achieved remarkable success, growing from its initial Annapolis facility to 14 locations across the region.

The 2017-2018 What’s Up magazine recognition marks a dozen years for Dr. Baganz as a Top Doc, who’s first recognition was in 2005.  In June, Dr. Baganz was named a Maryland finalist in the Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year Program.

CMI received 2016 Top Workplace recognition in the Baltimore Sun annual survey of area employees, for the third consecutive year.

Consistently adopting new technologies, CMI now offers patients’ state-of-the-art 3-D mammography screening in Annapolis and Easton, and nuclear medicine testing in Glen Burnie.

Reducing their carbon footprint, CMI has installed a 50-kW solar system at its Annapolis facility. The rooftop panels generate more than 59,000 kW hours annually (equivalent to the energy it takes to run 4 average American homes) and is expected to save as much as $30,000.
