Accordingly, Impression Imaging aims to get it right the first time.

Our Technology

Impression Imaging uses advanced PET/CT scanners and employs experienced technologists to ensure superlative quality images and techniques beyond the capabilities of other diagnostic imaging centers in the area.

Our Radiologists

Michael Fagien, MD Nuclear Radiologist

Michael Fagien is our Medical Director, Radiologist and Nuclear Medicine physician and has been providing PET/CT service in Broward, Palm Beach, Duval and Dade Counties since 2000. Dr. Fagien has read more PET/CT, and has more experience in hybrid anatomic and molecular imaging, than any other physician in the area. Impression Imaging's experienced staff promises to provide the most expedient scheduling, comfort for your patients, same day turnaround time for reporting and easier access to radiologists for consultations.

Dr. Fagien served as a Clinical Professor at the University of Florida in the Department of Radiology where he combined his passion for technology, diagnostic imaging and medicine and began formulating ideas about the potential diagnostic power of fusing multiple modalities such as CT, MRI and PET.

As Clinical Professor and subsequently, Chief of Nuclear Medicine at the University of Florida/VAMC for a decade, Dr. Michael Fagien explored and gained expertise in oncologic imaging and the fusion of metabolic with anatomic imaging such as CT and MRI, later incorporating positron emission computed tomography (now called PET/CT). Dr. Fagien believes that the combination of functional and anatomical imaging is truly the future of radiology and diagnostic medicine. Dr. Fagien has a wealth of experience in PET/CT, having interpreted more of these types of exams than anyone in the state of Florida (and more than most radiologists in the country).

An international speaker on PET, PET/CT, nuclear medicine and advanced imaging, Dr. Fagien trains residents and radiologists throughout the world and teaches physicians about the appropriate utilization of these tests. Additionally he advises the industry on development of PET and PET/CT. As a member of the Medical Advisory Board of Directors for PET and Advanced Imaging at GE Healthcare, Dr. Fagien has contributed his significant field experience to the enhanced development and design of tools for more efficient interpretation of medical imaging scans by radiologists.

In addition to his international speaking, advisory and principal roles on the clinical and business aspects of Diagnostic Imaging, and his continued radiology work through RadReads PLLC, Dr. Fagien served as the Chief Medical Officer for The Sagemark Companies Ltd, a national owner and operator of out-patient medical diagnostic imaging centers that utilized PET and PET/CT; as the Medical Director for National PET Scan, LLC, a leader in PET imaging services in Florida with facilities in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Jacksonville and St. Petersburg; as Chief Medical Officer for Radiology Corporation of America (RCOA), a leader in mobile PET facilities in the US as advisor to the utilization review firm MedSolutions; and as Chairman of the Medical Advisory Board of RCOA.

David Clayman, M.D. Neuro Radiologist

A graduate of the Ohio State University holding a Bachelor of Science Degree with Distinction in Microbiology, David Clayman pursued his medical degree at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio. After graduating in 1977, he completed an internship in Internal Medicine and one year of Internal Medicine Residency at the University of Connecticut, John Dempsey Hospital in Farmington, Connecticut. Dr. Clayman altered his career path and became one of the first residents in the Radiology Residency Program at the University of Connecticut. He completed his radiology training in 1986 and moved to Boston, Massachusetts, being accepted for a two year Neuroradiology Fellowship under the mentorship of Dr. Samuel Wolpert at Tufts, New England Medical Center Hospitals.

Dr. Clayman continued his academic pursuits in 1988 as a University of Florida Assistant Professor of Radiology at the University Medical Center in Jacksonville, Florida. He rose to the position of Associate Professor with Tenure and also served as Chief of Neuroradiology for the last seven of his nine years in academia. Due to a severe developmental disability in one of his children, Dr. Clayman moved his family to South Florida in 1997 in an attempt to provide greater care for his disabled child.

In South Florida Dr. Clayman has held various private practice positions in both the hospital and outpatient settings, eventually becoming a principal in starting Beaches MRI of Tamarac in 2005. He has served as Neuroradiologist for Beaches for the past seven years and has held the position of Medical Director for the past two years.
