The University of Missouri School of Medicine has announced a collaborative agreement with Northeast Missouri Imaging Associates (NMIA). Under the agreement, MU sub-specialist attending physicians will be available to provide subspecialty radiological interpretations to NMIA, bolstering the expertise offered on a local level.
"This is an exceptional expansion of our services and expertise, while allowing our radiologists to continue providing personal care on a local level," remarked Joel D. Hassien, MD, FACR, President of Northeast Missouri Imaging Associates. All NMIA radiologists live and work in Hannibal. The expanded expertise will create no additional cost to patients.
Physician faculty members of the MU School of Medicine comprise mid-Missouri's largest multi-specialty group, with more than 500 physicians trained in nearly 75 specialties and subspecialties. MU physicians also serve as faculty members at the School of Medicine, teaching medical students and resident physicians, and conducting research. This allows MU physicians to provide patients with the latest advances in medicine. MU physicians are known around the world for breakthroughs and advances in minimally invasive surgery, pediatrics, cancer care, neurology and neurosurgery, cardiovascular care, orthopaedic surgery, trauma, women's health care and much more.
The MU School of Medicine has improved health, education and research in Missouri and beyond for more than 165 years. MU physicians treat patients from every county in the state, and more Missouri physicians received their medical degrees from MU than from any other university.
