For Patients

It’s not just about your imaging exam...it’s about your experience.

We are grateful you are considering NMI for your imaging needs. Medical imaging is different depending on where you go, and as a patient we know you get to choose where you have your imaging tests performed. When your doctor tells you a MRI or CT is needed as the next step in your care, it’s up to you to find the best facility for your individual needs. While your physician or insurance provider may give you suggestions, ultimately you control your own care.

The patient experience is what drives NMI-you’re why we’re here. We are proud to deliver affordable, high-quality comfortable medical imaging to our patients through our independent, locally-owned free-standing facility in Munster, IN. Furthermore, our partnership with Northwestern Memorial Hospital and Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, both ranked at the top of the nation by U.S. News & World Report, guarantees our patients they aren’t sacrificing the quality of their care by seeking affordable healthcare. Because of all of this, we can say we offer our patients hospital-level equipment, hospital radiologist reads, without the hospital prices.

A MRI or CT, when performed and read accurately,
can provide an open window to your health.

Our ACR accreditation status ensures our patients that our staff is well qualified through education and certification to perform and interpret your imaging and that our equipment is appropriate to perform your test.
