Introducing Cutting Edge Diagnostic Solutions; Reducing Healthcare Costs; Earning CT Accreditation and Selected as Fujifilm Healthcare National Showcase Site
LEESBURG, Va. (September 28, 2023) Loudoun Medical Group, P.C. (LMG) and imaging partner, LMG Imaging Center, (LMG IC), are proud to announce LMG Advanced Imaging Services, (LMG AIS), a newly renovated 2,400 square foot facility housing cutting edge diagnostics is now exclusively available to LMG patients. The public is invited to attend an open house on Wednesday, October 4, 2023 at 19500 Sandridge Way, Suite 460, in Leesburg, Virginia from 5:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m. A ribbon cutting ceremony, hosted by the Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce will be held promptly at 5:30 p.m. With a commitment to delivering accessible, affordable, and accredited care, LMG AIS aims to revolutionize medical imaging service delivery for patients of all ages.
“As healthcare costs continue to rise, LMG remains steadfast in our commitment to providing integrated value-based care,” Mary Beth Tamasy, CEO, Loudoun Medical Group said. “LMG continues to develop ancillary support services, such as LMG AIS, to strengthen and streamline patient care, reduce costs and support LMG providers as they help our patients lead heathier lives.” Since receiving Certificate of Public Need (COPN) approval (including a 3.4% indigent care condition), LMG has invested over $2.5 million dollars towards facility renovations and advanced technology acquisitions.
LMG AIS is now equipped with a GE Ultrasound Unit and the Fujifilm Scenaria View Computed Tomography (CT) system, a premier scanner with an advanced Cardiac Motion Correction feature, called Cardio StillShot. LMG continues to partner with Reston Radiology Consultants (RRC) to staff and manage LMG AIS and the LMG IC, to ensure seamless care coordination and the highest level of precision in every diagnostic procedure. On-site advanced diagnostics allows the same group of board-certified radiologists to read and report on images during a patient’s critical surveillance period, which can expedite diagnosis and treatment.
“Through our collaboration with Fujifilm, LMG Advanced Imaging Services, with the new 128-slice CT, has been selected as a Fujifilm national showcase site,” LMG CEO said. “With this distinction, healthcare leaders from across the country are invited to tour the LMG Advanced Imaging Services facility and learn more about our programs”. Loudoun County officials project Loudoun’s population will increase by 118,000 or 28%, by 2040, making this Virginia’s third-largest jurisdiction, and the fastest growing jurisdiction in the Washington, D.C region.
Shawn Etheridge, Executive Director of MS Marketing at FUJIFILM Healthcare Americas Corporation, emphasized the importance of equipping LMG Advanced Imaging Services with the right solution. “A powerful CT system instills diagnostic confidence, enabling providers to make precise treatment decisions for their patients. Scenaria View’s 550lb table capacity, 80cm opening and 20cm lateral shift table combined with a high-power generator and powerful reconstruction architecture to deliver patient comfort focused, low dose, high quality, fast workflow imaging across a wide range of clinical applications.”
In addition to being selected as a national showcase site for Fujifilm, LMG Advanced Imaging Services was also granted accreditation by the American College of Radiology for a period of three years. ACR accreditation is recognized as the gold standard in medical imaging and helps assure LMG patients receive the highest level of image quality and safety. Quality imaging studies are a critical part of LMG’s multidisciplinary approach to medical care and an essential tool in the early diagnosis and treatment of many types of cancer.
“Adding LMG owned CT services provides our patients with a more comprehensive imaging experience by expediting advanced diagnostic scheduling at a more affordable cost, then hospital-affiliated or hospital-based imaging centers,” Mrs. Tamasy said. “With our patient-centric approach, we ensure a seamless and stress-free experience for individuals undergoing time sensitive diagnostic procedures.” LMG AIS utilizes advanced technology and a shared electronic health record system across medical disciplines. This existing integrated infrastructure positions Loudoun Medical Group to meet the current and future demands for advanced diagnostics in the region, giving patients and physicians a clear clinical advantage towards better health outcomes.
