AMI Foundation pledges $100,000 Donation to Gilda's Club

The Atlantic Medical Imaging (AMI) Foundation recently pledged $100,000 to Gilda’s Club South Jersey for their Large Group Support Room. Gilda’s Club South Jersey is located in Linwood, NJ. A dedication was held on November 13.

The large support group room is designed for Gilda's Club members to feel as if they are meeting in someone's living room. It has a home-like, non-medical feel so that members feel comfortable, which lends itself to supportive sharing. 

The room is used for the organization’s most well attended support groups. On Tuesday nights, it hosts the Wellness Support Group, for individuals who are living with cancer at any stage in their treatment - whether newly diagnosed, in active treatment or just beyond their treatment and dealing with survivorship issues. On Thursday nights, it hosts the Living with Loss Group, for members who have lost a loved one to cancer. Both of these groups are at the heart of Gilda’s mission and offer consistent, weekly emotional and social support for our members.

Like all of the groups at Gilda's Club, they are facilitated by licensed mental health professionals. During other times of the week, this group room is often used for New Member Meetings, Reiki workshops and at times the Book Club. It is a quiet, secure and sacred space within Gilda’s Clubhouse.

The AMI Foundation is a longtime supporter of Gilda’s Club, with many previous donations benefitting the organization’s Noogieland program. Named after the “noogies” that Todd (Bill Murray) gave to Lisa (Gilda Radner) on Saturday Night Live, Noogieland is the Gilda’s Club program dedicated to children, ages 3-14, touched by cancer. Whether for a child diagnosed with cancer, a child who has a family member or friend living with cancer, or one who has passed away from cancer, Noogieland is the place where children receive age-appropriate cancer support and education.

“On behalf of the AMI Foundation, we are pleased and proud to continue our support of Gilda’s Club, which does so much for so many individuals and families affected by cancer,” said AMI President and CEO David Levi, MD. “It is consistent with our mission, which is to enhance the quality of life and improve the level of healthcare for community residents through education and programs directed at these goals, as well as through financial support of other charitable organizations with compatible missions.”

"The incredible support and generosity of AMI has enabled thousands of South Jersey families to receive critical, psychosocial support during their cancer journeys,” said Erin McAllister, Gilda’s Club Program Director. “These families have participated, at no charge, in countless support and networking groups, educational lectures, healthy lifestyle workshops and social activities that have helped them to become active partners with their health care teams, improving their quality of life and advancing their recovery.”

Founded in memory of the late comedienne and cancer victim Gilda Radner, Gilda's Club South Jersey's mission is to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action and sustained by community.

The AMI Foundation of Atlantic Medical Imaging is a 501 © (3) non-profit organization dedicated to developing opportunities that enhance the quality of life and improve the well-being of community residents. This is done through education and programs, as well as through financial support of charitable organizations with compatible missions.

8th Annual Tools For School Drive

July 25 - August 19

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.

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.

“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 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).


Atlantic Medical Imaging (AMI) is a quality-driven medical imaging practice committed to clinical excellence by providing innovative service and compassionate care.  With 38 board certified radiologists, 450 staff members and 11 office locations in Atlantic, Cape May, Ocean and Monmouth Counties, AMI is the largest and most comprehensive provider of imaging services in central and southeastern New Jersey.
