Many New Jersey children face the prospect of arriving at their first day of school this September without the most basic of school supplies. In order to address this, the AMI Foundation is launching its 8th Annual “Tools For School” supply drive, now through August 19th.
There are many children right here in our own communities who are not properly prepared for their return to school, simply because they lack the basic supplies like pencils and paper. We invite the community to join us in donating much-needed school supplies, and thus help provide these children with an equal opportunity at a quality education.
The AMI Foundation has placed blue collection baskets in the reception areas of all eleven AMI office locations in Atlantic, Cape May, Monmouth and Ocean Counties. The list of requested school supplies includes pencils, erasers, spiral notebooks, pocket folders, crayons, colored markers, colored pencils, glue sticks, highlighters and soft pencil cases. Many of these supplies can be purchased at deep discounts at the area’s large retailers, such as WalMart and Target.
As in years past, the AMI Foundation has also purchased book bags to accompany the school supply donations. Once the drive is complete, the collected supplies and book bags will be delivered to elementary schools throughout the area in late August. To date, the AMI Foundation has donated nearly 2,000 book bags to area school children in need.
The first-ever 2016 Dragon Boat Race to benefit Gilda's Club of South Jersey was this past Saturday, July 9th, and had 36 teams who, combined, raised almost $100,000 for the organization. AMI was proud to be part of the experience. Our team was made up of an energetic mix of radiologists, employees, and family members/friends. Believe it or not, most of our team members had never even stepped foot into a boat, let alone paddled a boat in a competition before! But they made the best of it and really enjoyed putting together the theme—AMI Luau—which included grass skirts and AMI's signature color of blue leis.
Through the AMI Foundation, Atlantic Medical Imaging has supported Gilda's Club of South Jersey for many years, specifically through the Nooglieland Program which aims to support children who are cancer survivors.

With more than 170,000 people in New Jersey predicted to be living with Alzheimer’s disease this year, and that number only continuing to rise, the need to find a more effective diagnosis and treatment is becoming more and more dire.
The Press of Atlantic City recently spoke with Dr. David Levi about AMI’s role in the IDEAS study and why he is so proud to be involved. “I can say, personally, my grandmother had the disease and it’s a tough illness to watch. If we can make a difference in patients’ lives, be able to provide the typical level of service with a national trial, that’s what we’re about.”
AMI Begins Participation in World’s Largest Brain Amyloid Scanning Research Study Nation-wide IDEAS Study to determine clinical value of PET scans in Alzheimer’s disease diagnosis.
Galloway, NJ – Atlantic Medical Imaging (AMI) has been selected to participate in the world’s largest brain amyloid scanning research study. The IDEAS (Imaging Dementia – Evidence for Amyloid Scanning) Study will follow more than 18,000 Medicare patients nation-wide to evaluate the clinical value of a brain positron emission tomography (PET) scan to detect the hallmark brain amyloid accumulation of Alzheimer’s disease in diagnosing and managing treatment of patients age 65 and older with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) or dementia of uncertain cause. Information from this scan can help exclude underlying Alzheimer’s disease, and may help guide patient management.
AMI is the only imaging center in the region (Atlantic and Cape May counties) to participate in the study.
“We are pleased to have been selected to participate in this important research study,” said Dr. David Levi, AMI President and CEO. “We believe this study could yield findings that will have a significant impact on the diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease.
“Our participation in the study is consistent with our on-going commitment to be at the forefront of advances in medical imaging that can have a meaningful impact on the quality of people’s lives,” added Dr. Levi.
“The IDEAS Study will provide the evidence needed to demonstrate the utility of amyloid PET imaging in a clinical setting and for future decision making about insurance coverage for what we believe to be an important diagnostic tool,’ said Maria Carrillo, Ph.D., Alzheimer’s Association chief science officer and IDEAS Study co-chair. “A swift and accurate diagnosis has a huge impact on access to Alzheimer’s treatments, eligibility for research trials, plus much-needed support and information services.”
The IDEAS Study will not directly recruit patients. Participants must instead be referred into the study by neurologists who are dementia specialists. Dementia specialists will enroll patients who meet the study enrollment criteria and refer them for an amyloid PET scan. Amyloid PET scans will be performed and interpreted by AMI’s board certified, subspeciality radiologists with results provided to the ordering physician for disclosure to the patient and to support further diagnostic decisions. Scan results and diagnosis will be captured for the study.
Dementia specialists and other referring physicians may visit www.ideas-study.org to learn about the study protocols. The IDEAS Study is led by the Alzheimer’s Association and managed by the American College of Radiology (ACR) and American College of Radiology Imaging Network (ACRIN).
