ADVANCED IMAGING CENTER (AIC) was founded in January 1998 by Dr. Ray H. Hashemi, M.D., Ph.D. (Dr. Ray). Dr. Ray received a B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. in Electrical & Computer Engineering from the University of California. He later completed his Medical Degree (M.D.) from the University of Miami School of Medicine. Subsequently, he completed five years of diagnostic radiology internship and residency program and one year of MRI fellowship training in the Los Angeles area. He is the author of the book “MRI: The Basics,” a 385-page book with over 400 illustrations and images on the physics and basics of MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging), whose 3rd edition was recently published. It has been translated to Japanese. He is board certified by the American Board of Radiology and an expert in the field of MRI AIC has been a pioneer in advanced medical imaging equipment in the Antelope and Santa Clarita Valleys and has set a precedence on how outpatient imaging should be practiced. AIC has definitely set the standards in state-of-the-art high-tech medical imaging in the valley with over $7 million dollars in medical and computer equipment. These include the valley’s first OPEN MRI, the first high-field, short-bore MRI, the first 3D ultrasound, the first PET scanner, and more recently the first 16-slice CT scanner and the only 4D ultrasound. Our new 16-slice CT scanner is the fastest and the highest- resolution CT in the world.
