'In Your Neighborhood' campaign highlights several NP women EAST PROVIDENCE – Rhode Island Medical Imaging is celebrating its 75th anniver- sary by highlighting some of its patients in a grassroots "In Your Neighborhood" campaign. Using billboards, print ads and social media, RIMI patients become part of stories reflecting how they have come to rely on RIMI's network of 14 high-tech medical diagnostic offices. To kick off the campaign, four North Providence women are featured in ads highlighting mam- mograms. The women rely on RIMI's radiologists, each with their own subspecialty. In this case, it means that only radiolo- gists who have special training in reading mammograms read their mammograms. "As the largest private radiology practice in the state, RIMI is dedi- cated to providing patients with the most accurate imaging reads," said Dr. John Pezzullo, RIMI's president. RIMI's "In Your Neighborhood" will also be highlighting three generations of one family that have been using RIMI's services over the decades. Patients from East Greenwich and Pawtucket will also appear in future "In Your Neighborhood" campaigns. Visit for more information.
