Neurology Associates Earns MRI Certification from Intersocietal Accreditation Commission
Private, Standalone Practice Certified by IAC to Provide In-House Brain, Spinal Imaging
By: Neurology Associates of the East Valley, PLC
The designation not only guarantees that Neurology Associates adheres to and complies with stringent MRI standards and practices, it also extends coverage to patients insured by Medicare. No longer does this important, often stressed, demographic have to endure the frustrations of scheduling MRI appointments with different providers, waiting days, weeks or even months to undergo needed imaging, or seeking preauthorization.
"Dealing with brain and spinal issues, especially when answers aren't yet available, is nerve-wracking enough," said Ali Hajaig, founding partner and CEO of Neurology Associates. "We wanted to give all patients an easy, fast, way to access MRI imaging so they get information about their health sooner rather than later."

Medical offices and institutions such as Neurology Associates that earn IAC MRI accreditation do so only after completing an extensive, intensive analysis.
"We're very proud that our people, technology, processes and setting more than meet the requirements set by the IAC," said Neurology Associates' Andrea An, MD and certified board neurologist. "This certification gives our patients even more assurance that we are committed to delivering the best possible care."
Neurology Associates' SIGNA High Definition Magnetic Resonance system comes from GE Healthcare, one of the world's top MRI manufacturers. The scanner reduces the length of time needed for an MRI exam and, at the same time, improves the quality of the anatomical data compared to many other machines. Perhaps most importantly, the SIGNA HDMR makes MRI exams more comfortable for patients, especially those who have difficulty holding their breath during certain procedures.
Neurology Associates officially attained its MRI accreditation on Aug. 14, 2019, which lasts through Aug. 31, 2022.
