A native of Tecumseh and New Hudson, Dr. Jeffrey Mitchinson was inspired by a simple yet profound goal: to help people. Encouraged by his minister father, he attended medical school at the University of Michigan. It seems an interest in medicine runs in the family. His two siblings – also encouraged by their father – now work as a radiologist and epidemiologist/massage therapist respectively.
At college, his fascination with anatomy combined with an interest in technology led him further to study radiology, sub-specializing in cross-sectional imaging and ultrasound.
Dr. Mitchinson views the continual march of radiologic technology with fascination. It has moved from viewing films on lit panels to today’s powerful real-time digital imagery. However, he notes RMI’s approach to reporting has always been to fully question findings, obtain input from colleagues, and work closely with referring physicians. This is an approach which sees RMI as a collaborator with physicians, instead of merely a service provider. There is always, he said, an emphasis on problem solving.
With the rise of artificial intelligence, Dr. Mitchinson notes the ability to solve challenging medical problems keeps improving every day — leading to ever-better patient outcomes.
