“Our practice is looking forward to the collaborative opportunities within Strategic Radiology to access best practices for business management and practice management. We also plan to participate in SR’s group purchasing program and patient safety initiatives.”

Chesapeake Medical Imaging (CMI), a 12-radiologist independent private practice with 13 outpatient imaging centers, has joined the Strategic Radiology coalition.

CMI is a full-service practice with an emphasis on cross-sectional imaging, particularly MRI. The practice has built a reputation for subspecialty expertise among referring physicians and for a high level of service to patients and clinicians.

“We are delighted to welcome Chesapeake Medical Imaging to our coalition of independent practices,” said Arl Van Moore Jr, MD, FACR, CEO and chair, Strategic Radiology. “CMI is a highly regarded, entrepreneurial practice, and our first all-outpatient member group. We see a great deal of opportunity for collaboration with other SR groups in this important care arena, especially during the current challenging times.”

The group was founded in 2001 by CMI president Mark D. Baganz, MD, and has grown under his leadership to earn a reputation for exceptional service in the health care communities it serves. CMI operates 13 outpatient imaging centers throughout Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay region, from Annapolis to Nottingham.

“Our practice is looking forward to the collaborative opportunities within Strategic Radiology to access best practices for business management and practice management,” said Dr. Baganz, CMI president. “We also look forward to participating in SR’s group purchasing program and patient safety initiatives.”

CMI imaging centers offer the full range of imaging services including CT, MRI, PET-CT, nuclear imaging, ultrasound, and women’s imaging, with subspecialty interpretations provided by CMI radiologists. CMI is a registered amyloid PET site and participated in the Imaging Dementia—Evidence for Amyloid Scanning (IDEAS) study.
