|Maine Medical Partners - Neurology's mission is to treat our patients with the highest levels of professionalism and compassion.
Established in 1988, our practice (formerly Maine Neurology) has become the most complete neurological practice in Maine, offering a comprehensive range of services for adults and children. Our neurologists are board certified, and all understand the special needs and concerns of patients with neurological problems. In April of 2010, our practice joined with Maine Medical Partners and became part of the largest multi-specialty medical group in the State of Maine.
MRI Department at Maine Medical Partners - Neurology
Neurology's MRI department operates from 7:00am to 6:00pm, Monday through Friday. The department is staffed by two registered MRI technologists and two patient service coordinators, accommodating patients from Neurology as well as Neurosurgery. Our technologists skillfully perform vascular, neurological and orthopedic imaging, in most instances providing test results within one day.
The department houses a GE 1.5T Signal LX Echo scanner. Known as a short bore scanner, it allows patients greater comfort during their exam, since they can actually see the opposite end of the room, allowing for an "open" feeling, and not a "tunnel" feeling. Our technologists go to great lengths to insure all aspects of patient comfort. For instance, some patients choose to conduct their MRI exams with a cloth placed over the eyes for relaxation, while listening to music via radio or their favorite CD.
Our MRI department provides services to more than 250 patients each month, and has recently achieved 3-year accreditation as a result of a recent rigorous survey by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
