Diagnostics & Imaging
Diagnostics & Imaging Center
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 100 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 Myelograms. Benefits of operating our own facility include quicker turnaround times for results meaning fewer office visits, consistency of assessment, and timely post-op follow up imaging.
The MRI is equipped with a 1.5 tesla magnet that weighs 60,000 pounds; with this technology, the technologists 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. We offer the additional convenience of testing services of Electromyography (EMG) Video and nerve conduction studies (NCV) Video through the main office and at several of the satellite locations as well. By providing a wide variety of diagnostic ancillary services, the GNI surgeons are able to pinpoint the specific neurological conditions of our patients and plan appropriate action.
